Quilts of Valor (QOV) is a national quilting effort, that has distributed more than 200,000 quilts since 2003 and the beginning of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The mission of the QOV Foundation is to cover all service members and veterans touched by war with wartime quilts called Quilts of Valor. Quilts are received by all branches of the military.
QOV do have some specific requirements. Minimum quilt size of 60” x 70” to maximum quilt size of 72” x 87”. Fabric is required to be 100% cotton. Quilts must be quilted, not tied. Most QOV are often some combination of red, white, and blue although this is not a requirement; these quilts are distributed to adults so the size of the quilt and them of the fabric are significant.
