V For Victory

This is the 3rd quilt featured in our book Victory Girls. It's an abstract take on the letter "V".
It's a wonderful scrap quilt and can be quickly pieced with a 60 degree ruler. Of course, it is an homage to the "V" for victory sign that was ubiquitous during the early 1940's. Remember this guy?
Also, let's hope the "V" for victory sign can be inspirational for a certain sports team that will not be named.

Thanks everyone, for your kind notes regarding the Victory Girls publication. The books have started to drop in mailboxes, book stores, and quilt shops. It was great fun to work on and we are pleased as punch.

GORGEOUS! Love the subtle Vs. And Winston Churchill, too. :)

That would be a good pattern for the jelly rolls.

According to my history buff father, there is an interesting story behind the British V for Victory.

The French would capture the very accurate British archers (in medieval times, I guess) and chop off those 2 fingers. It became a taunt to show the French those 2 fingers during battles. You could say it is the earliest known version of giving someone "the bird."

Hi Laurie - What a fun design!

I just posted a picture of one of Polly's rug designs (the fish) on my blog if she'd care to take a look.
