I started with a 4 foot map of California.
Drew the design on Butcher Paper and then Paper pieced the map.
I Appliqued 'California' to the green background fabric.
Then embroidered the State Name and year admitted to the Union
State Flower, Bird, Flag, Mountains, Orange Trees, Grape Vines, Palm Trees and Sail Boats onto the Background.
The Center Panel was bordered by California Poppy print fabric.
and final green borders were added to make this a King size quilt.
It was raffled off at a meeting of "Sons of the Goldenwest".
It raised $500 for the organization.
Someday I'll make another one for me, I'm a Native Californian.
