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 (lpgrant100@comcast.net) 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 plans to host a group QOV presentation at the November 2022 meeting. In addition, as

we build up our supply of quilts we may make individual and/or off-site presentations.                                  (Nomination Form)

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.

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.
