Quilts of Valor® Mystery Quilt Patterns Free only for use in making Quilts of Valor
The mystery quilt patterns in this site are specifically designed for use in creating a Quilt of Valor®. Each pattern uses 5 sets of instructions. See the list of available mysteries by selecting the QOV Patterns List from the menu on the 1st line of this page (above the heading box).
QOV Mystery Patterns from previous years are also available on this site. To view the previous year's patterns that are available for your use, select the Previous Patterns selection above.
Every participant will be responsible for creating QOVs from their own fabrics. When finished, it will be the quilter's responsibility to see that the quilt is completed with quilting, backing, batting, binding and a label. Help with this process is available through the Quilts of Valor Foundation website (see link below) or through a local QOV group. When the quilt is complete the quiltmaker is expected to donate their quilt to the Quilt of Valor effort. You can do this in one of several ways: - award the quilt to a service member or veteran that you know; - donate the quilt to a local QOV group; - donate through the national QOV website so that it may be awarded somewhere else. If you will be the person to award this QOV, be sure to report the awarded QOV on the QOVF website so that the number of quilts awarded nationally can be tracked.
