The Medal of Honor quilt was inspired by my Heavenly Host pattern. My friend Donna wanted to give a Quilt of Valor to her dear husband. She loved the Heavenly Host design, but wanted something just a bit simpler. Together we came up with this beautiful design.
The Quilts of Valor Foundation (www.qovf.org), coordinates the distribution of these mostly patriotic quilts to members of our military who have been touched by war. The quilts are to show our deep appreciation for their sacrifices and to honor them for their valiant service.
Medal of Honor is designed to comply with the Quilts of Valor Foundation requirements. Please visit their website to find out more, and discover how you can honor our military with your quilt.

My mother taught me to sew when I was 8 - doll clothes by hand, then she moved me on to her old Singer. Home Ec in the 7th grade solidified sewing as part of what makes me who I am. Interestingly, the school had a room full of treadle machines!
Throughout the years, clothing and home decor were my thing. Cutting a beautiful piece of fabric into little pieces and sewing them together again didn't make sense. But when my first great-niece was born, I made my first quilt for her and was hooked!
As a new quilter, I couldn't find designs that were easy enough, so, I got design software and started tinkering. Now that I am retired, I pretty much just quilt, design quilts, and line dance. My charity work is for Quilts of Valor - check them out at www.qovf.org. I'm not a pattern publishing house. I just love simple, traditional quilt designs that use only a few colors. Thanks to Craftsy.com, I can share them with you. I hope you enjoy them.
