Georgetown Quilts of Valor

Update: March 21, 2014

This is our first Quilt of Valor ready for the long arm quilter who will back and quilt it. It will then come back to us for its binding, label and journal. We'll hear from headquarters the name of the family that will be receiving the quilt, and we'll be able to present it to them!

 You can check in on our progress as we begin work on our next quilt by visiting the Quilt of Valor page at Quilters' Quarters blog: just copy and paste this in a new window.

Georgetown Quilts of Valor

On January 20, 2014 a new group will meet in Georgetown, Massachusetts. This group will be volunteering to make quilts for an organization that awards the quilts to service men and women who have given service to our country.  January 20th happens to be Martin Luther King Jr. day, a federal holiday set aside to allow citizens to perform community service and other charitable work. What better day to start our new community group of quilters?  Stay tuned here at this page to learn more about the day, and the group. 


For our first meeting, we will gather at Quilters' Quarters (in Wooden Toy and Gift, 59 North Street (just two doors north of Perley School) in Georgetown, MA. As the group grows and a larger space is needed, we may shift meetings to the Erie 4 Fire Station, just two miles north of the Quilters' Quarters. 


At the first meeting, information packets will be distributed, sample blocks will be shared, and basic patterns will be distributed and discussed. Blocks can be sewn by machine or by hand but sizes will be consistent as required by the QOV Foundation. Our task will be to complete the quilt top(s) and then deliver them to the Massachusetts coordinator, Theresa Perreault of Spencer, MA. She will send the tops and batting to a long arm quilter (and we are invited to recommend long arm quilters from our area.) 


More information will be available on the 20th.  Will you join us?
