Please help us support our service members by making quilts for the Quilt of Valor
Foundation. QOV Foundation was started by Catherine Roberts in Nov. 2003. Catherine
gives all of us a chance to use our hands and do something we love to say thanks and bring
comfort to those who serve our country.
The mission of the QOV Foundation is to cover ALL combat wounded and injured service
members from the War on Terror whether physical or psychological wounds with wartime
quilts called Quilts of Valor (QOVS).

I am happy to make our first QOV pattern, MB's Split Star available for download here on

about 55" wide x 66" long.
I made this quilt with the help of my friends. I assembled block kits and my friends sewed
the blocks. Each kit contained 1 strip of each of the 4 fabrics. This kit was enough for each
person to sew 3 blocks. My friends graciously sewed the blocks and I assembled the quilt.
