This Early American design recalls our Nations Unity foundation and forefathers.

Between the well depicted portraits is a beautiful scene from their magnificent Mount Vernon Homestead overlooking the pristine Potomac River, long lush trees, old wooden fences and a noble stead prancing through greens and wild flowers.
This SAL’s Free Bonus consists of the additional design phrase “In God We Trust”, along with George & Martha that have been printed individually onto cotton fabric,,,they can finish them as they like. George & Martha have each been printed onto cotton fabric and measure approx. 5 x 5 ¾ inches with an oval design of 3 ¼ x 2 ½ inches.
