Welcome to the Susquehanna Valley Quilt Guild Website!
We love to quilt and we love to share our passion for quilting. If you love quilting like we do, we invite you to check us out! Our membership encompasses a wide range of ages and skill levels and promotes quilting through the use of traditional quilt patterns.
Our members enjoy learning new methods, and we encourage each other to share knowledge through member-offered workshops. Several workshops each year are presented by regional and national (many are award-winning) quilters/authors/instructors.

Quilts of Valor
One of our guild members, Billie Blakeney (570-683-6189) is PA state coordinator for this group.
QUILTS OF VALOR:
From the beginning, Catherine Roberts had definite ideas about standards of excellence for Quilts of Valor:
I knew a Quilt of Valor had to be a quality-made quilt, not a “charity quilt.” A Quilt of Valor had to be quilted, not tied, which meant hand or machine quilting. It would be “awarded,” not just passed out like magazines or videos, and would say unequivocally, “Thank you for your service, sacrifice and valor in serving our nation.”
I know many of our guild members have gotten together and made quilts for our neighbors and people they knew in the area. With what is happening in The United States, it’s making me rethink about all the people in uniforms defending our country and doing what is ask of them.
Any STAR design blocks could be made. You are welcome to visit their web site for ideas. Below are two start designs to use if you have not found a design (click on the star to open the pdf file). Eight point floating star and Floating wonky star. Any star pattern could be used and should measure 12 1/2″ to be finished as 12″. Most have a solid or tone on tone background with stars of red and blue.
