Welcome to our 2020 ComMEWnity PURRoject for Quilts of Valor
This purroject is extended into 2021 as we've experienced a little hiccup called the pandemic!
I'm gathering up the neighborhood to work on a community project this year! We're gonna spend some time in the (virtual) Sewing Room stitching up quilt blocks to be made into warm quilts, and if you have a sewing machine you're already counted in.
We're teaming up with Quilts Of Valor volunteer sewing/quilting groups across the country who make patriotic quilts to cover war veterans.
This PURRoject all starts with making piles and piles of 12.5" X 12.5" quilt blocks!

Did you know?
Since 2003 the Quilts Of Valor Foundation has sewn and awarded over 240,000 quilts, handmade by volunteers in all 50 US states. Their mission is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor. What a noble cause to participate in! ~Faline
How did this PURRoject come alive?
A beautiful thing started to happen in the comments of this post and a few other posts on Facebook. (tap the photo below)
I pounced on the opportunity to turn this beautiful thing into a ComMEWnity PURRoject for 2020.
I hope you'll join me and fellow Cat's Meow neighbors to see how many veterans we can cover with healing quilts of valor. Sign Up For Email Details to get started.
Grab your scissors, thread, and fabric and Let's

Psssst - If you have questions, thoughts, or are part of a QOV group, please CONTACT me. I want to make sure that everyone who wants to be involved is included in some part of this PURRoject.
Pssssst - I'll also continue to post updates on this page, showing photos of all the finished quilts and the veterans that receive them, too!
