Quilts of Valor Block Challenge and Giveaway

Recently there were several episodes on Love of Quilting {my local reruns} that focused on a Quilt of Valor idea {picture to the right is the finished quilt featured on the show}.  I found the quilt to be stunning, and the idea behind the charity, Quilts of Valor, to hit very close to home.  Every man in my immediate family has served their country in the military.  Luckily none of them has been severely injured or given their life in this way, but none the less… it is a sacrifice they have each ‘chosen’ to make.

SewCalGal is making her next Challenge/Giveaway a block drive for Quilts of Valor.  Check out her blog post about requirements, and ways to enter the challenge.

I am excited since I missed Moda’s deadline to send blocks to them, to have the chance to send blocks to this wonderful charity through SewCalGal.  Blocks need to be mailed no later than June 20th, and the address is listed in the post.

Sponsors for the challenge are: AccuQuilt, Quilt in a Day, and Martingale and Company.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post. I love comments, and will return the favor! ~ Kimberlee

    My baby brother just retired from the military and now lives in Germany. He was born there on our American military base. He loves Germany and his wife is from there and so it's now home for him but not before he served his American country. You rock!! Thank you for finding this link and sharing.
