Quilts of Valor Sew In

Our June meeting will feature the Ohio Star Block.  This is the 2019 Quilts of Valor "official" block.  We will demo how to create this block using either your accuquilt system or a Studio 180 tool you might already own!  

You may participate by making an Ohio Star block from a kit (we will have them available) or working on a project of your own as long as it is for the program.

Please register so that we can properly set up for the amount of volunteers we have!
Interested in Joining a QOV Group?
If you are in the Southern NJ and surrounding areas and are interested in joining a QOV Group, our QOV Group at The Quilted Nest in Collingswood, NJ welcomes you. We will have programs like Monthly Sew In, Guest Speakers, Trunk Shows, QOV Retreats, a QOV quilt block program, National teachers and other opportunities in the shop with lots of fun creating Quilts of Valor for many deserving individuals. You don't need to be a quilter to join our QOV group. There is always a need for people at our Sew days to help iron, bind, help with presentations, fundraising and we also need people to help with quilting the QOV finished tops. If you are interested in the QOV group, stop in, email or call the store to register your name and get on our email list.

(There is a nominal $5 Individual annual member fee collected by us on behalf of the QOVF.)

We will have lots of exciting fun ahead of us!
Our Group will meet quarterly. Please see our calendar of events for the dates.
We work on our own QOV quilts and we plan group QOV quilts and other events for those days.
These special fun group projects are announced in our Member Group QOV emails.

We also have a QOV quilt block program. These block kits come with a free pattern and are $3.00 per kit. You don't have to be a QOV group member to purchase and make a block. They are for anyone who wants to contribute to this worthy cause. You may return the finished block to the store to use for one of our "Sew Days" and contribute to a QOV quilt. We change the design and fabrics of the Quilt blocks every so often so stay tuned for new ones to come.

A little bit about Quilts of Valor for those of you that are new to the foundation. The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is "To cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor."
