I made this quilt a few years ago because I loved to color combination and because I love my country. I grew up singing My Country Tis of Thee and O Beautiful in our two room school and watch Ethel Merman belt out God Bless America. It still gives me chills.
The pattern is "Yellowbrick Road" and at the bottom of the quilt, I added a panel strip which says "God Bless America."
Now this quilt reminds me of how lucky I am to live in a country that is so great, with freedoms that we don't even realize sometimes. Now I look at this quilt and think about our soldiers fighting for us daily, hourly...fighting to maintain that freedom. I salute them.
