We will again be making BOM for Quilts of Valor (QOV) so start collecting your red/white/blue fabrics!
Beginning Jan. 2021 a BOM will be published in the PMQG newsletter and on the website. Blocks are to be competed by the following month. Make as many blocks as you like and they will be used to make QOV for donation.
