We are a busy bunch of quilters that strive to provide quilts as our small and humble way of saying "thanks" to our returning troops. Rita Pennington (email@example.com) is our "Drill Sergeant" and she keeps the (quilting) troops moving and motivated. We have 7 monthly sew-ins: St. Charles, Elgin, Rolling Meadows, Arlington Heights, Crest Hill, Geneva and Montgomery. See side bar for more info.

The family of Arthur, the presentation we did in Winfield send us a utube video I'd like to share:
AND, we got a thank you from another presentation:
the Elgin Library Staff gave me your present of the Quilt of Valor with
my picture I was over whelmed with emotion and tears. I was humbled by
your gift and the dedication and time Karen D and Chris J put into
making the most beautiful Shadowbox Quilt I have ever seen. Thank you
for the homemade card from all of the QOVF. I have few words. Thank you
for welcoming me home after so many years and for the thoughtfulness of
all you Patriots.
