    It isn't free, but Eleanor Burns has a whole book on Victory quilts:

    You could probably google her name and victory quilts and see some pictures, if that helps any.

    I found a book at Borders on clearance for 5.99 called Better Homes and Gardens Quilting Pieces of the Past.
    It has 54 quilts in it from 175 years of quilting. Sections in it are 1830-1860, 1860-1890, 1890-1920, 1920-1950, 1950 to present.
    It is a great find. Has history and patterns in it. the very first pattern is the T-square. Then criss-cross. Then flying geese. Then 9 patch. Then saw tooth star. Then irish chain. Then robbing peter. Then peony. These all dated from 1830-1860.
    It is a hardback originally priced at 29.95.
    Blocks from 1920 to 1950 are, Brides bouquet,butterfly,carpenters square,churn dash,crazy ann, dogwood, 8 point all over, flower garden, geometric puzzle, kaleidoscope, new york beauty, schoolhouse, star diamond, and tulip garden.

    Found the Names of them and a Book 101 Patchwork Patterns I got at Dover Publishing then Kansas City Star Quilt Patterns of Grandma's and Then I found on my BlockBase ,Electric Quilt Had them all All the Time wish I'd Looked sooner!!! But the Victory Quilts are only 20 blocks there must be More so I'm Gonna Look some More.!!! It would make a good Block of the Month or Class Or Something with the Red, White and Blue Quilts especially Now and all.
