Quilts of Valor Core Values

Treating people with respect

"Our community (quilters, longarmers, points of 

contact, recipients, and donors) includes 

people from many walks of life. Each of us 

must promote inclusiveness, respecting the 

opinion of every other fellow volunteer. Let 

us always look for the common threads that 

unite us rather than the differences that 

could divide."

Promoting Excellence

"Quilts of Valor are civilian awards to those who have 

been willing to stand in harm’s way for our 

nation and been touched by war, not “charity 

quilts.” Of utmost importance is sewing with 

quality fabrics, working with skilled machine 

quilters, making quilts big enough for an 

adult to rest under, and labeling each quilt 

clearly to identify it as a Quilt of Valor."

Valuing service over self

"Knowing I am as capable as anyone of self-focus, a goal 

from “day one” has been to keep the focus for 

our quilts on the recipient, not on us."

Being accountable

"As our foundation grows, it’s a big challenge to transmit every communication with wisdom and compassion, but we must be accountable for our words and actions on every level. Being accountable to me means being truthful to all."

These were thoughts of Catherine Roberts, the Founder of Quilts of Valor, regarding the QOV Foundation's Core Values.
