The Niceville Library has a display of Quilts of Valor for November, in honor of  Veteran’s Day, provided by the Flying Needles Quilt Guild. The Guild puts lots of love into each of the quilts created to make life a bit better for a member of the Armed Forces. The Quilt of Valor Foundation began in 2003 with the goal to present heirloom-quality quilts to those who are touched by war. It has awarded more than 106,000 quilts to service members and veterans, including those who served in previous wars, such as WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. According to the Foundation, “A Quilt of Valor is a wartime quilt, made to honor those touched by war. This foundation is not about politics. It is about people.” Quilts are made by guild members in various shades of red, white and blue to a size of 55 by 65 inches. Each quilt is presented in a matching fabric case with a written journal of quilters’ comments and photos of the quilt-making process.
