Purple Mountain Majesties and a Forest

McCall's Quilting March/April issue has part 2 of the quilt directions for Lynn Lester's design.  I haven't made all of the trees yet so this is just what I've completed so far. 

Katherine Lee Bates wrote the poem Pikes Peak in 1895 after a trip west.  When it was published it was retitled America, and then when it was set to music the title was again changed to America the Beautiful.  It is one of the most loved patriotic songs we have and it's great to sing.   Don't you just love the word grouping "purple mountain majesties"? 

Still plenty more  trees to put together.

SewCalGal http://www.sewcalgal.blogspot.com/ has a giveaway of an Accuquilt Go!  which ends on February 14th.  As I'm writing this there are 404 comments so I see my chances of winning becoming fainter, but I'm still trying.  Good luck to everyone who reads this and enters.

God Bless You.
