I originally designed this wall hanging September 12, 2001. The tragedy of September 11th inspired a patriotic feeling that led me to create this quilt. On my quilt, I have inscribed the first verse of America the Beautiful in the neutral stripes. This is optional. You may inscribe the words of any patriotic song or simply leave it plain. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Rotary cutting skills and sewing with a 1/4" seam. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 17 x 27"
