Quilts of Valour – Canada Society

 

The mission of Quilts of Valour – Canada is to present quilts to injured or ill military members, past and present.  At this time, Canada has over 45,000 injured veterans (average age of 45). To date, Quilts of Valour – Canada (QOVC) has presented close to 12,000 quilts. Our goal is 20,000 by 2020. We have a long way to go.

In 2019, Quilts of Valour will be celebrating its ten year anniversary as a nonprofit society. QOVC is hoping you will help us celebrate by making log cabin blocks /or finished quilts for our injured military members. The block is an unfinished 10 1/2 inch log cabin block made in reds and whites representing Canada with a yellow centre representing a light in the window/welcome home. Click here for the block pattern.

Quilts of Valour will have a larger booth than normal at Quilt Canada 2019, thanks to the generosity of the Canadian Quilters’ Association (CQA/ACC)
We will be inviting a number of distinguished and celebrity guests from the Ottawa area to sew pre-cut log cabin blocks at the booth; each guest will have a sewing coach to help with the block. Drop by our booth at Quilt Canada 2019 to encourage our guests as they try their hand at this art form.
