A Quilt of Valor is a generous lap-sized quilt made by an individual or group that pieces the fabric for the front, then adds batting and backing fabric before machine quilting. After it has been bound, washed, and labeled it is ready to be awarded.
Quilts are awarded at many different levels: they are awarded to all active service members and veterans touched by war. They may be presented in groups or individually, but no matter how a Quilt of Valor is awarded, the impact it delivers is unequivocal. Here are a few comments.
“I didn’t know anyone even cared.” – Korean Veteran, July 4, 2017
“You’ve touched me in more than one way and I’m grateful.” – Vietnam Veteran, July 4, 2017
Just how much of an impact has the Quilts of Valor Foundation® made? As of February 1, 2018, Quilts of Valor has awarded 180,693 quilts to service members/veterans worldwide.
