January 2020 Challenge: America the Beautiful 

Challenge: America the Beautiful 
Challenger: Rosie Crockett
Due Date:  July 2020 Meeting
America the Beautiful was written by Katharine Lee Bates as a poem in 1893 and first published in 1895, it was combined with music composed by church organist Samuel A. Ward in 1910. Bates wrote the poem after a journey to the top of Pikes Peak in Colorado, saying the views there inspired her.
America the beautiful challenge:
Take the four parts from the song and interpret them into 4 blocks. Make those 4 blocks into one quilt to form a whole picture of America the beautiful.
Use any style, any technique, any embellishments 
Finished quilt should measure at least 16 inches on one side.
1. O beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
2. For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
3.  America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
4. And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
Your finished pieces will be due at our June meeting and ready to display for the 4th of July holiday if you meet this challenge!
 You have not met the challenge if you quilt is not finished.
Good luck and be creative!
