Georgia Commits to Quilts of Valor in a Big Way

Elsie Dixon, Macon Georgia, (the woman being interviewed with the tiara), turned 88 that very day and was made Queen QOV'r for the Day.

Elsie is a long arm quilter and quilted the first quilt and the last quilt that we quilted on a Gammill Professional Longarm Quilting Systems during the weekend. Susan Gordan, Regional coordinator for North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia for the Quilts of Valor Foundation, stated the group quilted 16 quilts during their recent gathering and completed 78 more tops and backings to go to long armers across the state for final finishing.


  1. I LOVE Mrs Elsie!~what a special lady. The first time I met her, about 3 years ago I think, at retreat on St Simons, I fell in love with her. Immediately adopted her as my grandma. I don't live near her, but sure wish I did! Looks like a lot of fun!~thank you all, for all the wonderful work!

  2. Thank you to all those at GWINNETT Quilts of Valor. GA who worked on the 5 wonderful QoV sent to the Welcome Home Initiative they will be such a blessing to those Veterans who attend a WHI retreat
