The Mission of the Quilts of Valor® Foundation:  "To cover Service Members and Veterans touched by war, with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor®".

You are invited to help us create Quilts of Valor®  for our deserving Service Members and Veterans in our East Central Illinois area.  In 2014, we created and awarded thirty-three (33) Quilts of Valor® to area Service Members and Veterans.  In 2015 our East Central Illinois Group created and awarded 78 Quilts of Valor, and in 2017, we exceed our original goals and created and awarded over 100+ Quilts of Valor!  We were able to accomplish this through the generosity of local area talent, coupled with wonderful monetary and non-monetary gifts from area donors.
