We grow things that enjoy the Florida sun, including twelve Japanese plum trees that yield gallons and gallons of golden plums every year.  We eat locally whenever feasible, so making a quilt from American Made fabric was a joy.  My plum trees are just beginning to bloom, with bright citrus ripening between them and magenta bougainvillea in front.  Fewer food miles meet fewer fabric miles in this quilt. The vivid colors were both a reflection of my surroundings and a celebration that I had such great colors to choose.
