A Winner and Victory Girls book review

The winner of our book 'Summer at the Lake Quilts' and our awesome Picnic Ant Pincushion (a project from the book) is . . . . . . .
(drumroll, drumroll, drumroll)
who said on December 9 @10:42pm, "WOW the cover is the quilt!!! Polly and Laurie sent me here and I will definitely be back.The ant is to die for...he makes me smile and in my favorite color too. Thanks for the giveaway." So, Pat, e-mail us: and give us your address so we can send you your prizes!

Ooh, another beautiful book from Polly and LaurieKansas City Star pulled out all the stops when they published this book of 'patriotic quilts and rugs of WWII' by Minick and Simpson.  And, what better subject matter from the queens of red, white and blue?!? The title certainly works for them--Victory Girls.
The cover is beautiful, as usual, with the red, white, blue, and creamy background.  Ooh, I love that creamy background stuff.  Take a look at this quilt.
How beautiful is that?
And look at these beautiful borders.

As you may know, Laurie is the quilt designer and Polly is the rug designer in this sister duo.  And, this book certainly does not disappoint in either category.  These talented sisters bring you a stunning collection of their latest works, including quilts, rugs, and stitchery.  Their inspiration was the brave women who kept the home fires burning during WWII.
Polly and Laurie have got to be some of the nicest people at Quilt Market.  They are always friendly.  That's why people love them so much and they have such a loyal following. 

Good work, girls.  See you in Kansas City in the spring.

Susan and Sally
