Quilts of Valor Foundation and QOV’s are becoming recognizable images throughout our country. Often you will see an image of a service member or veteran with a quilt; chances are, it is a Quilt of Valor. We are so pleased to note that we’ve also been heard – by Nu-Blu! It is with gratitude and a growing sense of excitement that we share our Quilts of Valor journey with Nu-Blu. We are honored that they share their songs to raise awareness of Quilts of Valor and our Mission to ‘cover’ service members and veterans with gratitude.” – Tammany McDaniel (Executive Officer QOVF)

About QOVF:
Formed in 2003 by Catherine Robert, Quilts of Valor® was created to fulfill a lifelong dream to deliver healing through specially made quilts, which are presented to veterans. It is the mission of the non-profit “to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing.” The Quilts of Valor® Foundation is a non-profit organization established and operated under section 501(c)(3) of the US Internal Revenue Code.

How Nu-Blu Got Wrapped Up in Quilts of Valor

By Daniel Routh

We had a vision for Nu-Blu from the very first day we formed the band in 2003. We wanted to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. But really, more than just wanting to be a part, we wanted to be involved and make a real difference. As we grew from regional, to national, then international touring artists, we were always on the search for an entity or charity to connect with. We knew when it was right, we would recognize it.

Fast forward to a music festival in Victorville, CA. It was hot, 115-degrees-in-the-shade hot. We had already performed our first set of the day and were looking forward to our evening set and cooler temps. We kept noticing a group displaying a quilt and the promoter had mentioned some type of presentation. Well, to be honest, our first thought was, “quilts in this heat, they must be nuts!” The emcee of the event began sharing details of what the presentation would be about.

The group was Quilts of Valor Foundation (QOVF). A World War II veteran, a Vietnam veteran, and an Afghanistan veteran would be honored that day. Each veteran was awarded a “Quilt of Valor” (QOV) and given thanks for service and sacrifice. Having multiple family members that were in combat in WWII and holding strongly to the belief that veterans are the REAL heroes and role models in our nation, we sat down.

The presentation had only just begun, and we knew, THIS WAS IT! This was the organization that we had been looking for. The QOVF presentation stole the show that day. It carried more impact than any music from any of the bands. We were scheduled to perform our song “Family Quilt” in our evening set, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. After hearing it, several of the QOVF members approached us and shared more about QOV and how that song fits in so well with the quilting culture. That was our confirmation—we had the song and the connections to make something big happen.

So, it’s official! Nu-Blu is so happy to announce that QOVF is our official partner. We are thrilled. In addition to providing recorded music for fundraisers, we have also organized quilting cruises, with the next one in February 2021 sailing out of Galveston, TX. More info can be found at  www.bluegrassandbluewatercruise.com.  We are working hand in hand with their Executive Director to bring the message of what QOVF is all about to a much broader audience. We look forward to everything that we will do in the future to help with fundraising and wrapping QOVs around as many veterans as possible.
