Welcome to the Quilts of Valor (QOV) Group! And, thank you for wanting to make and donate quilts to bless and honor our service men and women. We are a new group as of July 2010, so this group site will grow as we do. Here is what our group is about and how it works.
QUILTS OF VALOR
"Quilts of Valor" are quilts donated to the Quilts of Valor Foundation (QOVF) for distribution to our wounded soldiers and/or their families. Our group is not an official outreach of the QOV Foundation, but, rather, a place where giving quilters with a heart for our military professionals can share together our work on their behalf. It is my hope that you will, indeed, donate one or more of the quilts ou make with us to the Quilts of VAlor Foundation or to other charities that serve our military. You can find out more about the QOVF on the Quilts of VAlor Foundation Overview page on their website: www.qovf.org.
QOV GROUP GUILDELINES
Our group is just getting started, so you are in on the ground floor. I'm Sharon of Raleigh, the moderator. On the right-hand panel of the screen are the links to the various parts of the group. Please check out all of them - no telling what you might find there.
I have started discussion threads on a variety of topics. Please look at all of them and join in the discussion. For now, only the moderator will be able to start a thread. If there is a topic you'd like to see as a discussion thread, let me know. Star with the Welcome to the QOV Group discussion and introduce yourself!
Pages of information and guidelines will be created as needed. Right now the only page available is the Quilts of Valor Overview page. Please be sure to read that page, and check out the QOV Foundation website (www.qovf.org).
Here we can submit pictures of our QOV quilts in a gallery type format. Each member wanting to share pictures will have her/his own media forder. Let me know if you would like to have a folder.
To communicate with me or any other memeber of the group with more privacy than in the discussion threads, just click on the name of the member in the "Members" section or in a discussion thread and click on "Start a conversation" in their profile header.
Now, let's have some fun and make some Quilts of Valor! Happy quilting!
