Quilts of valor pic 1 Quilts of Valor Foundation began in 2003 with a dream, literally a dream. Founder Catherine Roberts’ son Nat was deployed in Iraq. According to Catherine: "The dream was as vivid as real life. 
I saw a young man sitting on the side of his bed in the middle of the night, hunched over. The permeating feeling was one of utter despair. I could see his war demons clustered around, dragging him down into an emotional gutter. Then, as if viewing a movie, I saw him in the next scene wrapped in a quilt. His whole demeanor changed from one of despair to one of hope and well-being. The quilt had made this dramatic change. The message of my dream was: Quilts = Healing."

Inspired by her dream, she came up with an idea. Have a volunteer team who would donate their time and materials to make a quilt. One person would piece the top and the other would quilt it. I saw the name for this special quilt. It was a Quilt of Valor!

Quilts of Valor's are stitched with love, prayers, and healing thoughts.
Combat troops who have been wounded or touched by war are awarded
this tangible token of appreciation, that unequivocally says,
"Thank you for your service, sacrifice and valor."
