GO! for a Star QOV Blog Hop

One of the Quilts of Valor coordinators, Tink Linhart and I have worked with Accuquilt and Aurifil and are having a QOV Challenge during April and May. Information about this Challenge is listed below. But to be very concise – our goal is to challenge as many quilters as possible to make a QOV, whether it be a set of blocks, a quilt top, or a completed quilt – and submit it by May 31 so that it can be given to an active duty service member or Veteran who has served in a war zone.

We are having a blog hop April 2 – 6 to kick off this challenge and will have some great prizes for giveaways. We’d like to inspire as many quilters as possible to join us. So mark your calendars for the blog hop and mark your calendars for time to make a quilt.

And there will be prizes for those who complete quilts for the Challenge including Aurifil thread, fabric, and the grand prize is an Accuquilt GO!™ Baby and five dies of the winner’s choice.

QOV Blog Hop Dates: April 2-6 – see a list of featured bloggers here

I will be blogging from April through May about Star blocks and will be showing you lots of quilts made with stars. I hope you will send me some photos of your quilts too so that we can create a whole gallery of star quilts.

  1. I make tops for American Hero Quilts, which is counted under the umbrella of QOV. Will one of those work for this blog hop? Or several?

  2. Susan, that would be wonderful and those quilts will definitely be welcomed for the challenge which goes all the way through May 31. Please come back on April 2-6 and visit for the blog hops too for more ideas and enter for some prizes – and thank you for posting the badge on your website.

  3. Thank you so much! I’m working on tops all the time, and I’m so excited to do something to bring attention to the great need for quilts for the soldiers!
