Quilts of Valor and Community Service
2022-2023 Quilts of Valor
Producing Quilts of Valor is an ongoing process. Piecing blocks, tops, quilting tops, binding, labels, and washing completed quilts are tasks for which volunteers are needed! Please contact Louise Grant if you are willing to do any task.

Machine Quilters needed!
We have several quilt tops to match with machine quilters! Please contact Louise
Grant (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are willing to take a top this coming month.
We need to increase our supply of presentation cases. I am attaching the instructions here. A case
takes a total of 1 yard of material, usually 3/4 + 1/4 contrast. If you are interested in doing one or
two, let me know and I'll get material to you! Instructions are below.
Thank you again for your interest and willingness to participate!

QOV Nomination Forms
Form to nominate a Service Member or Veteran for a Quilt of Valor (made by BVPM Quilt Guild) is
available on the BVPM Guild webpage on the QOV section of the Community Service Committee.
The Guild has voted to host a November 2023 QOV Presentation. A call for nominations for that
presentation will go out in June and be accepted through September 30, 2023. However, the QOV
Committee will accept nominations at any time and coordinate individual presentations with the (Nomination Form)
nominator at alternate locations and times. Please use the nomination form and mail to the Guild
PO Box address. (on Home Page) Please read the criteria for nominations and make sure the form
is filled out in its entirety. Incomplete forms will be returned. Nominees will be contacted in
advance to ensure the recipient is willing to accept a QOV and has never received one previously.
The guild will be hosting a Quilt of Valor Presentation at our November 1st, 2023 meeting. In order to be scheduled for that date completed nomination forms must be submitted no later than September 30, 2023.
Individual presentations can be scheduled separately in collaboration with the QOV Committee.
Over the Summer of 2023 we will have two more QOV days at the Thursday Sew at Hopewell Twp. Community Building Just off Clark Blvd. in Hopewell Twp. The dates are Thursday, July 20th and August 17th from 10 AM to 4 PM. Let Louise know if you can attend, and don't forget to bring a lunch.

Bowl Cozies for Meals on Wheels
This year’s Community Service Project is to make quilted bowl cozies for seniors in need that will be delivered by the local Meals on Wheels organization. The bowl cozies can be as simple as two matching pieces of fabric or two separate 10" square pieces of fabric. Follow the instructions on the document below and bring them to any guild meeting to give to Bonnie. For September '23 through the end of the year, please use holiday fabrics! :-)
