Patriotic colors preferred but not required. Need ideas?
Visit http://www.qovf.org/quilt-patterns/ OR
http://www.maryquilts.com/ideas-for-qovs/ and choose from numerous quilt designs!) If you don't want to quilt it, just assemble the top and one of our longarmers will quilt it. Or you can just make one or more blocks, in red, white and blue and 12½" unfinished. Any block will do!

They can be any red, white, and blue fabric. Even florals - there is a women’s unit at the VA hospital, and they are so appreciative that we remember them.
