Block # 22 Florida - The Sunshine StateWhen Juan Ponce de Leon landed on the shores of northeast Florida in April of 1513. He called the area “la Florida”, Spanish for flowery, covered with flowers, or abounding in flowers. State symbols: Orange Blossom, Oranges, Sabal Palmetto Palm, and Horse Conch Shell.The love for the Baltimore Album Quilts made during the 1800’s was the inspiration for the American Album Blocks.
