Military T-shirt Quilt update

Working on a Military T-shirt quilt to display at our upcoming QOV Events to honor our Military Service Members and Veterans from ALL Branches of Service.  To date, these are the only Military T-shirts we've received:

Military T-shirts and accompanying fabrics - We Need MORE T-shirts!
We will not start construction of this Military quilt until each and every Military Branch is represented, as well as ALL our Military bases - domestic and foreign.  Each T-shirt quilt requires a minimum of 20 - 25 T-shirts, we only have five so far, not nearly enough to even get started creating this memorable quilt to honor our Service Members and Veterans.

Here are the details - We Need:
  • Military T-shirts from ALL branches of our US Military, including Military Bases, domestic & foreign - any color in good, clean condition
  • Please drop-off at any of our Quilts of Valor drop-off locations listed on our Home Page or the Clark/Crawford/Edgar U of I Extension Bldg.; 15493 N State Hwy #1; Marshall, IL.  62441
  • OR you may mail your Military T-shirt(s) to:
Deb Lindley/East Central IL QOV State Coordinator
PO Box 445
Marshall, IL  62441

IF we receive more Military T-shirts than we need, we will use ALL additional Military T-shirts to create additional event quilts to share with other East Central IL Quilts of Valor Groups.  NO Military T-shirt quilt will be raffled or awarded as Quilts of Valor however, as different groups donate their time to share our Quilts of Valor Mission, each group could benefit from having a beautiful quilt that honors our various Military Branches and our Military Bases, domestic and foreign, to help convey our message of honoring and covering our Service Members and Veterans through Quilts of Valor...Thank YOU!

UPDATE 6-2-2015:  Looks like we may now have enough to create one Military T-shirt quilt!  Just got some more mail and here's our latest tally of military T-shirts and NOW we have EVERY branch of our 5 branches of military covered, including the US Coast Guard:


Military T-shirts from ALL 5 Branches of our Military...Thank YOU!
