My husband and I took a cross-country road trip last summer and I was able to see first-hand that America truly is so beautiful! The farms and cities, fields and mountains, deserts and lakes were breathtaking. As we drove, the colors, landscapes, trees and climate changed, and every change reflected a stunning uniqueness. We met so many kind people and saw many wonderful quilt shops on our cross-country journey that I did what artists do, I drew and painted my memories. I hope you enjoy this patriotic tribute to our lovely country, "America the Beautiful."
