Veteran's Hug, Quilts of Valour Canada

A Veteran’s Hug

October 11, 2022

The autumn 2022 issue of Canadian Quilter features this easy-to-make Hug Block designed by Paul Leger for Quilts of Valour Canada (QOVC).

Hug Blocks are assembled to create quilts that Quilts of Valour Canada gifts to injured Canadian Armed Forces members. Volunteers like you can create blocks or whole quilts and send them to QOVC for gifting.

There are several block patterns available on the QOVC website that use the Northcott Stonehenge Oh Canada! line of fabrics.

This new block was designed by Paul and made available to CQA/ACC members first, just in time to make a donation quilt to honour Remembrance Day 2022.

Learn more about the specifications for donation quilts at And be sure to share your creations in the Quilting in Canada group on Facebook.
