East Central IL QOV is a QOVF Volunteer Member Group in good standing with the National Quilts of Valor® Foundation.  Our only focus is in creating and awarding comforting and healing Quilts of Valor to honor and cover our deserving Service Members and Veterans.  Established in August, 2014, when the National QOVF Volunteer Membership Program first launched, East Central IL QOV has had the privilege to create and award over 75 Quilts of Valor to area Service Members and Veterans throughout the 39 counties it serves.
The Group also answers the call to honor and cover our wounded warriors recovering from battlefield injuries in Landstuhl, Germany, contributes Quilts of Valor to be awarded to our committed Service Members who have volunteered to escort our fallen Warriors home to their final resting place from Port Mortuary, Delaware, and continues to ship Quilts of Valor all over the United States whenever a call of need comes through the National Quilts of Valor® Foundation.

Deb Lindley, the Founder of East Central IL QOV, and her longarm quilting machine she affectionately refers to as Miss Betty, have been quilting Quilts of Valor since 2010.  In 2012 they became official longarm quilting Volunteers through the National Quilts of Valor® Foundation longarm quilting service.

Then in 2014, several opportunities arose with Quilts of Valor®, including starting the first Clark County  4-H Quilts of Valor Special Interest Group, establishing the East Central Illinois Quilts of Valor Group, and accepting the position of East Central Illinois QOV State Coordinator.  Needless to say, it’s been a busy and productive few years with Quilts of Valor for Deb, the amazing East Central IL QOV Volunteer Members, and ‘Miss Betty’, resulting in LOTS of Quilts Of Valor quilts for our deserving Service Members and Veterans.
