Happy New Year!

Babies come in all shapes and sizes. As a retired nurse-midwife, the baby our QOVF team delivered today is different from any other I have delivered. The baby I am talking about is our new program named "Under Our Wings (UOW)".

Uncle Sam Honor Roll
I can't think of a more perfect day to make a resolution than January 1. Near the top of my list for this year is to serve my nation by taking 10 Rookies under my wings in the Under My Wings program.

No matter what your skills are, you can be a part of this fabulous program. The concept is simple and does two things: makes more Quilts of Valor (QOVs) for our wounded = serving our nation; and two, brings non-sewers into our quilting world using American Valor fabrics for their QOVs = supporting local quilt shops and American fabric companies.

Our team has worked very hard putting our new Under Our Wings section together. We want you to visit. We want Quilt shops to register to be an Official Under Our Wings Shop (OS); we want the rest of you to be a Rookie or Fan = serving our nation.

Join us and make a new year's resolution to serve our nation.

We here at the QOV Foundation wish you all a very happy New Year. May peace and joy fill your lives.

Quilting to Honor & Comfort our Wounded,
