Heart of Ohio Quilters’ Guild Involvement in Quilts of Valor
Heart of Ohio Quilters’ Guild began involvement in this project in 2005 and has stitched about 30 quilts each year for this effort. The QOV chairpersons receive fabric for this project donated by the guild’s members. The QOV chairpersons prepare quilt top kits that are distributed to members who wish to stitch a top. Some guild members create their own quilt tops and provide their own fabric. The QOV chairpersons then send the quilt tops and backing to volunteer longarm quilters assigned by the QOV Foundation. After quilting, the quilts are returned and members bind the quilts, launder them, provide a label, and a presentation case. A letter from the guild accompanies each quilt. The QOV Foundation assigns a destination and the guild provides a budget that pays for shipping the Quilts of Valor to their destination.
