QOV In The News

Last night on NBC News with Brian Williams, on his Making a Difference segment,  they had a nice report on Quilts of Valor.  Here is the clip:
I got a call within a 1/2 hour after airing from a gentleman who wanted to donate fabric!  Other states got calls as well.  What we have coming though are many requests for quilts!  The person in charge of those requests had over 150 by end of evening---and that was before it reached the West Coast!

What I need are machine quilters!  Just to let you know, we have batting!  I have over 30 tops here with backing AND batting all packaged and waiting for quilting..can you help?  We don't need these until March so that we can have them bound and labeled by the request for 100 quilts in April.

Keep the bobbins filled and the machines humming!

Great video, now, if we can just convince them that it isn't a blanket, but a quilt.
