Quilts of Valor

Hello Wednesday friends! I hope this finds you doing well. Times have been busy here. We are currently working on quilts, baby quilts with crib bedding and such for our shows this fall! We will be at the Chandelier Barn Market this fall and Christmas! We are so excited!

We’ve had the opportunity this week along with our regular Longarm Quilting to work on this Quilt of Valor! These quilts that come from the Quilts of Valor are donated to a veteran. The quilt maker volunteers her time and the Longarm quilter donates her quilting and batting. We all work together to make a large quilt to be given to the Veteran at a little celebration! It is another way to give back and we are all about that!

We also obtained some old vintage quilted tops. In fact they are handstitched and they are amazing! We are going to be repairing these and quilting them and making quilted coat tops! This is another one of our missions that we are working on. For every 10 quilted coats we sell we will be personally handing out a coat to a homeless person in Indiana. We hope that you will help us with this mission by donating quilt tops for this project! As a quilter and person with a heart for serving and caring for others I believe this will be a good way to give back. IF you would like to personally get involved please send me an email at lavenderfieldsblankets@gmail.com or through our website here on the contact page!

We would also love to be able to supply a hat and gloves with these coats. So if you would like to donate those that would be great. We will start handing out the coats this fall for the winter season 2020-2021. We would love to now but it just takes time and resources and those are being used in other areas too. But we should definitely be up and running with the coats this fall!

Well I guess that is about it for now! We are working on two quilt alongs and will have that information for you tomorrow! Have a great day!
