We join in Honoring the Pearl Harbor Veteran Survivors during their 75th Anniversary through Quilts of Valor

Our East Central IL QOV Group recently volunteered to assist in finishing a QOV quilt top originally created by the Quilts of Valor Stars Group, by adding a border, quilting/binding/labeling and shipping the completed Quilt of Valor to assist one of our fellow Group Leaders, Laura from Texas.

Laura will soon be travelling to Hawaii with her husband, to celebrate their wedding anniversary and while there, to also join in part of the ceremonies honoring those Pearl Harbor/WW II Veterans, including awarding several of those survivors from ALL over the United States, Quilts of Valor.

This stunning Quilt of Valor quilt top recently quilted and coming off the frame:

Once quilted, it's time for binding:

All ready to ship!

We included our personal letter to our QOV Award Recipient - in this case, a WW II Veteran and Pearl Harbor survivor, and Thanked them for their Sacrifice and Service to our Country.

It's been quilted and shipped.  Let's hope and pray it arrives safe & sound and just in time to accompany Laura to Pearl Harbor for the 75th Anniversary!

Safe Trip, Laura...
