This just in... We were thrilled to receive an update on the popular Quilts of Valor project (QOV), spearheaded in 2010 by industry luminary Marianne Fons. At the time, Marcus was one of several fabric manufacturers invited to create a special fabric collection. QOV not only provides American active duty service people and veterans with the warming comfort of a handcrafted quilt, it also helps to create new quilters through its resources and volunteer leadership team.
Marianne reports that since the program launched just a few short years ago, growth has been swift and substantial:
As the program flourishes, demand for patriotic fabrics also continues to grow. If you'd like to get involved, visit www.QOVF.org, and review our new LOVE & GLORY collection by Faye Burgos. You'll love the easy-to sew panel and coordinates, and we've got two great free projects to get you started.
You can get involved by making quilt tops, quilting and finishing quilt tops, hosting sew-days, donating fabric, donating finished quilts, and/or making a monetary contribution.
Congratulations to everyone at Quilts of Valor / Under Our Wings!
And Thank You to all of our active service people and veterans.
