Quilts can bring us closer together by embodying resilience and hope. In times of need, quilts have the ability to envelop you with warmth, love and support. To put it simply, quilts have the power to heal. A perfect example of this is Quilts of Valor.
Quilts of Valor is a foundation that gives people an opportunity to say thank you to veterans for their service and sacrifice through the creation of homemade quilts.
Quilts of Valor was launched in 2003 and has been covering service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing quilts ever since. Each quilt is a tangible gift that shows how much love and appreciation there is for veterans across the nation.
As part of our Sew To Serve series, BERNINA of America is urging our sewing community to sew a quilt and donate it to Quilts of Valor. To help, we are providing an easy-to-follow tutorial you can follow along with.
