A finished quilt should be no smaller than 55” x 65” nor larger than 72” x 90”
The guild holds monthly QOV sewing meetings, where the fabric and patterns are provided. Meetings are usually the first Monday of each month at the Moore County Senior Enrichment center.
What is a of Quilt of Valor®
A Quilt of Valor® (QOV) is a quality, handmade quilt that is machine or hand quilted. It is awarded to a Service Member or Veteran who has been touched by war. The Quilt says unequivocally, “Thank you for your service and sacrifice in serving our nation.”
To use the term Quilt of Valor, Quilts of Valor or QOV, the quilt must be a specific size, must have a label with required information, it must be awarded (it is not a gift) and it must be recorded. These are examples of the Quilts made by and donated by the SQG to the Quilt of Valor Foundation for our veterans.
