Old Glory was born when red, white, and blue vintage quilt tops were finished by longarm quilters who share a military connection. The quilters received the top, backing, and the instructions “quilt as desired.” They donated their time and talent. We chose to work with “forgotten” tops - the ones that were damaged, unfinished, ill-made, or unremarkable. These tops were not destined to be completed, enjoyed, or treasured. What we now share is pure magic! This exhibit was created to promote the Quilts of Valor program. We choose to focus on our patriotic heritage and further serve the military family that we have been fortunate to be a part of. These quilts debuted at the 2017 Quilts of Valor show and now are traveling as a collection. When they have completed their travel the quilts will be auctioned to raise funds for Quilts of Valor.
