Spotlight on a Donated Quilt

The CT Quilters Group was proud to be the conduit in delivering one of the Quilts of Valor made and donated by the Venice Isle Quilters of Venice, FL.  This fabulous quilt was included with the stack of quilts that was delivered by Pat to the Poly-Trauma Unit at the James A. Haley VA Hospital in Tampa, FL on May 16th.

We were pleased to present this quilt to the Volunteer Services personnel at Haley on behalf of the Venice Isle Quilters Guild.  For more details about our delivery of QOVs on May 16th, please read this previous post.

If you or your group are interested in making a Quilt of Valor, we would be happy to take it to the VA Hospital when we deliver our quilts.  Please follow the Quilts of Valor Foundation’s guidelines as to the Do’s and Don’ts (sizes, fabrics, labels, etc) here:

There are many great QOV patterns available free for your use on-line (we have some quilt and block pattern links on our sidebar), or you can use your own design like the sampler shown above that was made by the Venice Isle Quilters.  We greatly appreciate your donations as do the men and women who serve our nation.  They are honored to know we care.
