Summer Sewing?! Yes, it’s the 2019 QOV  Summer Mystery!

Too hot to be outside? Try a Quilts of Valor ® Summer Mystery while cooling off indoors!

QOVF member Sandy Berg has hosted a QOV Mystery quilt with a free pattern for the past seven years. Now she brings a “sizzling summer” mystery with yet another free pattern.

The 5-week QOV summer mystery starts the week of July 15 and ends the week of August 12, but you get the free pattern to make a QOV afterward too.  For information CLICK HERE
Choose your fabrics now and get ready - first clue announced July 15

But wait, there’s more…the “People’s Choice.”

Visitors to the website will vote on-line for the QOV top they like.  The QOV top with the most votes is the “People’s Choice.”

How does this work?
- After you complete your top, send a picture attached to an email to SummerMystery@QOVF.org
   Your top will be posted with just a number, no name. 
   Please note pictures within the body of an email will not be accepted.
- Deadline for submission is September 6, 2019
- “People’s Choice” voting ends September 20, 2019

Have a safe sewing summer!
