Alycia is a super-talented Quilt Artist and QOV Volunteer, who also creates stunning Quilts of Valor throughout the year for our very deserving Service Members and Veterans.  One of the very first Quilts of Valor 'Miss Betty & I' created was one of Alycia's QOV Mysteries.  You may recognize it:

One of Alycia's QOV Mysteries from 2012
After completing the assembly of this 2012 QOV Mystery of Alycia's, I opted to add patriotic embroideries.  This Quilt of Valor was originally created with my WW II Veteran and dear father-in-law 'Dick' in mind.  Sadly, it was not completed until after his passing.  This Quilt of Valor is now a 'Tribute Quilt' in honor of his life and his service and sacrifice for our country at Iwo Jima, as well as the life of my Uncle Danny - a Vietnam Veteran, and my cousin, IRAQ Veteran, Charles - who served and fell in IRAQ.
