SharePoint 2010 List Instance Quicklaunch Navigation

I am working with a ListInstance in Visual Studio and I want to change the default location on the Quick Launch that the URL to the library goes.  By default, it goes under the Libraries header.  I want to set it under a custom header.  Is this possible?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">
  <ListInstance Title="Contract Templates"
                Url="Lists/Contract Templates"
                Description="PDF form templates for Electronic Contracts">

QuickLaunch is independent from ListInstance feature, you can't set custom header from there. All you can is to set OnQuickLaunch-"FALSE" and add custom header and custom link to your library to that header.
you can do it in feature receiver:
