Boundary Bay Quilter’s Guild (BBQG) supports Quilts of Valour – Canada Society.
Since 2009, our guild has donated 239 Quilts of Valour!
Quilts of Valour – Canada Society (QOVC) encourages volunteer quilters to make quilts for our injured Canadian Armed Forces members. The quilts are presented to injured military members recovering from physical or/and unseen injuries, when and where the recipient feels comfortable by military personnel, as well as representatives from Quilts of Valour. Quilts are also presented to care facilities where our veterans now live.
BBQG’s Quilts of Valour representative collects Quilts of Valour from members of the guild and passes them along to representatives that distribute them to recipients. Check out BBQG Quilts of Valour Donations for 2020-21.
You can help by donating completed quilts, quilt tops, or even blocks. There is batting and backing available, as well as volunteers to quilt your quilt top. Your top can then be returned to you for binding, or can be bound by another guild member.
The tops should be a minimum of 54-56″ wide x 66-72″ long, and a maximum of 72″ wide x 84″ long.
