This mini quilt was inspired by our two week escape from the frigid North to the glorious South. The camper pattern was collected during the 2014 Michigan Row by Row Experience with some awning and carpet embellishments I added. The original pattern had pine trees which I replaced with a palm tree and the sun, two things not found in the North. Since I am new to quilting, a wonderful quilting tutorial from the “The Inbox Jaunt” guided me through the quilting process for appliqué.
Here was the inspiration for this mini quilt. Treasure Coast RV Resort in Fort Pierce, Florida is 10, 10, 10 in my book. The managers, Bill and Diane, do a great job! The staff and guests are warm, fun and friendly. There are planned activities to enjoy, water aerobics, bingo, line dancing, cards, pool and entertainment to name a few. We spent time exercising on our bicycles and swimming and came back lighter and more tan than when we left. We met some great folks too: Marty, Connie, Allen & Cynthia, Joey, David, Debbie to name a few and had some wonderful neighbors Larry & Lois and Jerry & Dar. My brother and his family came down for a visit and we visited with our long time friends, Tom & Suzie, who are snow birds in Delray Beach. It would not have been as fun without our wonderful friends, Tracy and Linda, who shared our motorhome on Lot #149 and Mike and Leni who came down and spent a week in their camper on Lot #33. I can’t wait to spend every winter glamping in Florida but it will be for months not weeks in years to come.
