Heartlands of America

The road was narrow along the Blue Ridge Parkway of the Smoky Mountains. Leaves blanketed the road and hillside, wild turkeys startled at our presence scattered up the mountainside. So began our drive from Virginia to Tennessee. It had been a very long day of driving when we finally arrived in Nashville last evening which left our sightseeing for this morning before we hit the road again, crossing the border into Kentucky by noon. These are a few of our journeys through the streets of Nashville and Paducah, Kentucky. Enjoy!

  4. Hi Phyll, thanks for the encouragement. the 2 pictures of quilts, one is a stained glass window and the other is a wooden quilt. They hand carved it from wood and painted it to look exactly like a quilt. The quilts in the museum were not allowed to be photographed so they are forever etched on my memory. 🙂

  5. What do you mean that the other is a wooden quilt? The stained glass window I get, but is that last picture a carving? Impossible!?

  6. Not impossible. It was a wooden carved quilt that was then painted. It was beautifully done.
