The lifetime award of a Quilt of Valor

Famore Cutlery
Although quilting may not be for everyone, the individuals of Quilts of Valor have shown that it can be for most veterans. The mission of QOV is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor. It all began in 2003 when Catherine Roberts had the idea of creating quilts to comfort veterans, which all stemmed from her son being overseas in Iraq.
