Victory Garden

Victory Garden Quilt Pattern with red and blue fabrics
I've been wanting to make a Victory Garden quilt for a long time and I finally got the pattern for the shop (it's on my Must Make list).  And I've been creating a stash of pretty blue and red fabrics for a long time too.  And I think these two (the pattern and the fabric pile) are a match made in heaven, don't you?  But I am absolutely NOT going to start this quilt before I get the Going Coastal Granny Square Quilt DONE.  I promise!  I'm just planning ahead and not "Project Jumping" again.

And speaking of the Granny Square Quilt.....I've ordered some Navy blue fabric that I'm going to "audition" as the sashing.  A lot of the people that "voted" for blue mentioned that it really would look better as Navy blue instead of Royal blue.  And I'm really curious to see how that will look too!  Sooo....I'd rather wait a week for new fabric to arrive instead of compromising on something that might be less than perfect.

And thank you to everyone who left comments about the sashing color.  I loved reading all of your thoughts and ideas! 

Happy Sewing,

Your fabric is beautiful. Can't wait to see the pattern made up.
Looks like the two were made to be used together!
