Farmer's Skinny Patriotic is our second "skinny" pattern. A confident beginner quilter can use this wall hanging as a skill builder. The pattern is printed in full color with easy to follow instructions and graphics. The quilt finishes at 58" x 58". There are so many different characters that could have been placed on this quilt. The designer only has one branch of the military represented, but we did pick the one closest to our hearts, the Navy. Her Grandpa Johnny served on the USS Boxer, my father-in-law served in the the V-12 unit, Susan's father-in-law served on the USS Boston Cruiser and Susan's brother-in-law is currently in the navy as a mineman of the USS Charleston. We had many memorable presidents, but personally we thought Abe has one of the most distinct looks and was a great president of the past. The Statue of Liberty is a must, wouldn't you say? Uncle Sam is actually a fictional character that has become an American icon since 1950 when it was used to encourage men to enlist in the military. It makes me think of the many parades during the summer months celebrating a town, county, state and the nation. Full of stars and stripes, that guys is!
