2023 Quilt of Valor Challenge
The theme of this year's challenge honoring our service members is STARS.
There are 3 options for your quilt:
All entries must be a minimum of 55x65 inches, be 3 layers, quilted and bound. Fabric must be quilt shop quality and washed. Please do not reveal your quilt before judging which will be the first Wednesday in-person meeting of the guild in January 2024. If you give your quilt away before then, retain a picture to be shown at judging. Winner will receive a $25 gift card to the quilt shop of their choice. Challenge coordinator: Kay Blikken.

2021 QUILTS OF VALOR CHALLENGE
Quilt of Valor Block Challenge & Winner
(Numbered in order shown above)
Complete a block of your choice, using any technique (applique or piecing or a combination of both) in one of the following UNFINISHED sizes:
24.5 wide x 24.5 high, 20.5 wide x 24.5 high, or 18.5 wide x 24.5 high
Use red, white and blue PREWASHED (very important) quality cotton fabric, batik or standard cotton. QOV center block will have one winner:
At the February 3, 2021 meeting, we will show the photos in a slide show twice, once to show the entries, and again so you can make your final choice. Then via anonymous Zoom poll you will vote. The winner will be announced and each person can explain about their quilt/block when it comes up in the slide show. Center blocks will be combined with additional blocks and/or borders to make a QOV top which will be completed at sit and sews by our members. Several of our members have agreed to machine quilt them. Extra fabric will make completion much easier but isn't required.
When finished the quilts will be given to Norene Dagly as our in-house QOV representative(!) for future presentations.
You may want to use your center block for a completed QOV quilt presentation to a qualified recipient you choose.
Please call or email me with any questions.
