QOV Spotlight: Ronald Olson

Posted: 1 March 2016 at 6 a.m.

Quilts of Valor (QOV) is an incredible organization based on volunteerism.  Quilters donate their time and supplies to give a quilt to soldiers who have served our country.  Ronald Olson, is one of these volunteers.

This month, Ronald passed an astounding milestone by quilting his 2,000th quilt for QOV!  Here it is:

Ronald says, “I began quilting Quilts of Valor for men and women who served in the military in 2003.  Piecers send me tops and backs and I supply the batting and quilt them.  This is the 27th quilt that I pieced as well as quilted.  As long as men and women serve our country in the military, I intend to continue making quilts for QOV.”

The quilting patterns are:  Bubbles by Christy Dillon and Lincoln by Anne Bright.

    I commend you for your service to those who have served our country. No greater effort could be given from an ordinary citizen. Thank you so much, not to mention your creative flair on quilting pieced tops so that the quilting complements the top!
