More QOV's delivered

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the smiles on the reciepients faces when they recieve a Quilt of Valor. It is just so awesome!!!!  And the tears of gratitude, of amazement that anyone would want to do this for them.... so cool.

I love it when the families are able to see their veteran recieve a Quilt of Valor. This little girl was precious. I kinda wanted another little one after hanging out with her!


This dear sweet man - oh boy - he was just too sweet for words, and when I handed him his quilt - the last thing I said was "Welcome Home" and he lost it. No one had told him that yet.

Thank you all for your help in covering these Veterans. I swear each one of you that participate in this endeavor is totally AWESOME!!!

I started my first QOV yesterday. I wanted you to know, it is following your blog that has encouraged me to get started. I am slow so it may be awhile til it is done. Thanks for the inspiration.

It's awesome making these quilts, and, I speak from personal experience, the warm feeling you get when you hand one of these wonderful quilts to one of our service members is beyond words. Thank you so much, Alycia!!
