A Very Special QOV Gift...

...from an even more special Quilts of Valor Volunteer, Laura, and QOVF Group Leader of the Quilters with a Heart Group from Harker Heights, Texas.  Just received this wonderful Thank You card/note along with a stunning Pearl Harbor lapel pin, which commemorates the 75th Anniversary of that fateful day at Pearl and our country's history.

You may remember, we quilted/bound/labeled and shipped a Quilt of Valor, at the request of Laura, who was travelling to Hawaii to celebrate her wedding anniversary during the 75th Pearl Harbor Anniversary, and also decided to honor and cover our WW II Veterans from ALL over the US with Quilts of Valor while there.  We wanted at least one of our Illinois WW II Veterans covered.  With the assistance of the QOV Stars Group - who provided this gorgeous quilt top that we bordered out and quilted, we were able to fulfill our Quilt of Valor goal.

And even though this QOV was shipped in time to travel to Pearl Harbor w/Laura, due to unforeseen circumstances, it was NOT delivered to her in time.  However, Laura is committed to having this Quilt of Valor awarded to a WW II recipient, and we know she'll do her very best to keep that commitment.

In spite of this Quilt of Valor not being awarded at the Pearl Harbor Commemorative Event, Laura still felt our East Central IL QOV Group deserved a Thank You for our QOV efforts, and included this wonderful 75th Anniversary collectible lapel pin...Thank YOU, Laura, it's so special - we will treasure this gift, ALWAYS!

Thank YOU, Laura, for ALL your efforts in honoring and covering our WW II Veterans with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor during our country's 75th Commemorative Pearl Harbor Ceremonies.
