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.

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 chairs receive fabric for this project donated by the guild’s members. The QOV chairs prepare quilt top kits that are distributed to members who wish to stitch a top. Some guild members create their own quilt tops and provides their own fabric. The QOV chairs then send our quilt tops and backs to volunteer longarm quilters assigned by the QOV Foundation. Members then bind the quilts, launder them, provide a label, a presentation case, and a letter from the guild that accompanies each quilt. The QOV Foundation assigns a destination and the guild provides a budget that pays for shipping QOF to their final definition. For more information about the effort see the QOV website at www.qovf.org  Patterns for QOV may be found on the guild pattern page (hyperlink to page) For more information, contact the HOV Chairs at This email address is being protected from spambots.
