I never get tired of looking at patterns that use granny squares. They are so versatile from the design and how it is assembled to the colors that can be used. This is a pretty patriotic design that would be loved by all. If you have a family member that served in any branch of the military they would love this.

I have been around a while and I have seen the granny square assembled many ways to achieve the final result. I love the idea that first there are motifs joined together and finished in a great big granny square. I really like this design.
