Another of our Un-Sung QOV Angels, Marilyn has been busy!

She's at it again - doing what she does best... creating and awarding beautiful Quilts of Valor to some of our very deserving Service Members and Veterans.  Just received these photos from 'our Marilyn'. Aren't these QOVs gorgeous!

A Quilt of Valor inspired by Liz Porter of Fons and Porter aptly named, Hero's Tribute.  This QOV quilt was created by a dear friend of Marilyn's.  When she saw ALL the efforts Marilyn had expended with her Quilt of Valor Mission, she felt moved to contribute her QOV quilt to help Marilyn fulfill her mission of creating and awarding QOVs for ALL the Service Members and Veterans in her immediate Decatur, IL area.  Thanks Pam, this Quilt of Valor is beautiful!

A BIG Thank YOU goes out to all these Veterans for their service and sacrifice for our country, and for 'our Marilyn', another of our QOV Angels who continues to cover and honor our Service Members and Veterans with comforting and healing Quilt of Valor.
