Did you know about this?
Well, you should.
I didn't, until the kind and talented quilter Maria Tavey Umhey shared with me this gorgeous quilt she just finished (click to see it bigger).
This particular quilt was created in memory of her own uncle, a WWII Veteran, and will welcome another soldier home.
Quilts of Valor is a nonprofit organization bringing together quilters and longarmers from around the country with one goal: "...making quilts that would both heal and comfort our war wounded. These quilts are called Quilts of Valor (QOVs). Wounds that qualify are those that are both seen and unseen..."
