I have found the Quilts of Valor group for the UK, thanks to information from one of the American QOV coordinators, and I have now joined them as a volunteer.  I am going to make quilt tops and pillowcases.

My first project?  Well, I have these beautiful Makower coordinates just languishing in my stash….
