Quilts of Valor Foundation <~~ The overarching organization
Below are links where you can scroll down to see lots of different Valor Quilts that people have made. Some are more striking than others. They don't *have* to be Americana colored, but ours will be, because we need to have some point of coordination with no block pattern being chosen. ;D

Because of the set-up of our Bee, our quilts will be scrappy style versus all-over design. But TRUST ME - they will be very pretty when we get finished with them!
