Kids make Quilts of Valor too

If you know me, you know I have been a champion of kids making Quilts of Valor since forever!

My first groups of kids making QOVs was in 2004/2005 - and some of those kids now have kids - whoa  ( Mind blown!!)

recently we had the chance to work with the Local FFA ( Future Farmers of America) 
With the University of Northern Colorado Softball team

I probably wouldn't have called those college students kids.. but you know... someday they will be old and appreciate it right? haha!!

These are the three Combat Veterans that received the most recent Quilts of Valor created by these groups - the two on the Left were made by the Platte Valley FFA, and the one on the right was made by the UNC Softball team.

I did the quilting on them, and was so honored to be able to award them

Years ago, a middle school near me asked for our local QoV group to come teach the kids how to make blocks for a QoV quilt. We went a couple of weeks in a row, and the kids had a blast. They loved seeing the quilt tops finished.
