Our national anthem will be 200 years old in 2014! The lyrics come from the poem, "Defence of Fort McHenry" written by Francis Scott Key in 1814. It was set to the tune of a popular British song written by John Stafford Smith. These fabrics commemorate this important part of our national history and culture. Our two project quilts meet the size requirements for Quilts of Valor quilts. In addition, the prints would look great used in an apron, music tote (to carry instrument or sheet music) or as a summer table cloth!
