The Victory Girls quilt was a joy to make. I enjoyed every stitch. We wanted to do right by our mothers, aunts, grandmothers and neighbors. Every block had a theme and, if I had to choose, this one was my favorite.The inspiration for this was the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. You know, the REAL baseball league that was started during WWII. Since many of the other pro players (Men) were serving - baseball was in danger of collapsing during the war. It started in Chicago and was a small league in the Midwest. Living close by I have heard tales of it and even met a few of the veterans. Besides, isn't this movie one of your favorites?A League Of Their Own
If you think you would like to make the Victory Girls quilt, Polly and I will be at Holly Hill Quilt Shoppe in West Linn Oregon in November. Polly will teach a hooked purse, and I will teach a portion of this quilt. We can't wait!
