Hello Quilting friends! I wanted to share with you my Charity Quilt for the Pay It Forward Campaign called Covering the World: One Quilt at a Time 2022. This is my charming Quilt of Valor Quilt.
I am an AccuQuilt Go!Getter and I have teamed up with other quilters and designers from AccuQuilt, Moda Fabrics, and Brother to create and donate our time and quilts to a charity of our choice. Every week in 2022, one person from our teams will be donating a quilt to our favorite charity. My chosen charity is the Quilt of Valor Foundation.
The Mission of the Quilt of Valor Foundation is to cover Service Members and Veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor. I have many friends and family members who have served our country and I have a special place in my heart for the veterans and members of the military who have given so much of themselves.
I belong to my local group, Stitching Sisters Quilts of Valor in Clawson, Michigan. We get together monthly to sew quilts in fellowship and fun. Here is a picture of our group showing some of the blocks we were making for our quilts.

We often get fabric donated to our group from the local community. All of the fabrics in the quilt I made were donated. I had a selection of chambrays and red and blue cotton fabrics with tiny stars printed on them.
I used the AccuQuilt GO! Blazing Star 12” Finished die (55051) by Eleanor Burns for my quilt blocks. The contrast of the prints and chambray really make the Blazing Star stand out. I used sashing and cornerstones to pull it all together. My friend, Sue Baker, did a beautiful job of completing the long arm quilting. She was one of the sisters who founded our Stitching Sisters QOV group.
