Headed to Taiwan

Home of the Brave
QOV awarded
source

The local Quilt of Valor (QOV) presentation was made last week, and ninety-six veterans received quilted hugs in honor of their service.

I was delighted to see that Home of the Brave was selected by Marianne Lambert, who served in the United States Navy and is now a missionary in Kaoshuing, Taiwan. Marianne's smile made my day when I saw this photo featured on County 10.

If you know of a veteran who would like a Quilt of Valor, one can be requested on the Quilt of Valor website.

Quilt of Valor needs more volunteers to make quilts and to machine quilt them. None of those who work at the national or state level of Quilts of Valor are paid - it's an all volunteer effort. Please consider making some quilt blocks or a complete quilt top. If you have a longarm quilting machine, please consider quilting one or two quilts a month for this effort. Let's make sure that every veteran receives a quilt hug for their selfless service.

  1. There is definitely a happy smile on her face. And I'm guessing you had a similar smile to know your beautiful quilt is so much appreciated. That is one of the most important reasons we quilt.

  2. 96?! How wonderful! Part of the reason I would love a midarm quilting machine is so that I would be able to quilt QOV quilts. Home of the Brave is beautiful and no doubt Marianne will treasure it!

  6. What a beautiful smile! I can tell that she loves it already. I really like the picture squares. I would join you if I knew the first thing about quilting. I keep toying with the idea but not doing anything about it.

  8. Hi Nancy, thank you for all the QOV's you have made. This veterans smile is worth all the work! I read your blog about every day, we had similar lives growing up on a farm. I am sorry for the lost of your brother, even if it was years ago. Take Care--Julia, Lincoln, NE
