NEW Year QOV Mystery launches...

Another Quilts of Valor Mystery quilt is in the making and just about ready to launch! One of our very creative and generous QOVF Volunteers, Alycia, has just announced this incredible opportunity, open to ANYONE who wishes to participate.  The ONLY requirements for participation is to follow and honor the QOV Mystery guidelines she has set forth...easy/peasy!


All the QOV Mystery details may be found by following this direct web link:

The first QOV Mystery I participated in:

A1 QOV Mystery blocks ready for assembly
This QOV Mystery reveal came right before the first of the New Year and is a tremendous asset to our QOV quilt pattern arsenal...Thanks, Alycia!

Alycia now makes this wonderful Quilt of Valor pattern, Stars A Waving available as an instant download through craftsy.com 

In between, been a little busy playing catch-up w/ALL the QOV Mysteries, including the Allietare Mystery our East Central IL QOV Group will be using as one of our 2016 Fundraisers.  This is what we have so far:


Gold Allietare Stars
 And the rest:


Units for the RED Allietare Stars
Still have more than enough to do to finish but, we're getting there, slowly but surely.

In the meantime, getting twelve (12) QOV quilt tops ready for borders and binding - some that were created by our Doris, to be applied on QOVF National Sew Day on February 6, 2016!  

What are you doing on QOVF National Sew Day?
