This is a Civil War era fabric quilt made in the log cabin pattern. It is 92”x 92”. Sarah does all her own quilting, but uses a sewing machine. Hand-quilting takes too long and she doesn’t have the patience.
This little quilt is probably the hardest quilt Sarah has ever made and she took a class to learn to make it. The border was as hard as the rest of the piece.
This is a memory quilt that Sarah made for her niece when she graduated from high school.
This design is a laser-cut applique, but really speaks to the cowboy days, both in the West and Florida. It hangs in Sarah’s living room.
Sarah made this quilt made for her friend’s grand daughter. It is a quilt as you go quilt. Fun to make!
Sarah made this quilt for a friend’s baby. All the embroidery designs are Jacobean.
Sarah loves trees. Each square of this very large quilt (76”x 111”) has an embroidery design of a different tree. This is an ongoing project since each square has to be machine quilted. She works on it when she has the time.
This was Sarah’s first log cabin quilt, which she took a class to learn. She was able to learn more sophisticated quilting techniques than she previously knew.

"The content is heart stopping. Other than 'Gone with the Wind,' I never saw the War through a woman's eyes. It is an eye opener."
Ocala Star Banner
“The pages are rich in detail and rife in the inner-workings of a complicated family. The prose by novice writer Sarah A. Younger, of Merritt Island, is peppered with apt descriptions of true events that colored the lives of her real family members.”

“It was the area of La Crosse (now known as Lacrosse), northeast of Gainesville, that the family built a homestead that grew into a very large enterprise. It is in the family’s convoluted story, which includes a truly devious daughter-in-law, that this book really grabs you.”
“Merritt Island author Sarah A. Younger’s ancestors settled in Florida after the Civil War, and she has traced some branches of her family tree to the 1820’s. She has collected her grandmother’s family stories and filled in the gaps with historical fiction.”
