What We Do…
Florida Cabin Fever Quilters Guild opened its doors to Central Florida almost 30 years ago. Since then, our members have produced countless numbers of quilts for personal use as well as for community service. Our annual programs include a mystery quilt, a challenge quilt and an original 12-month block of the month program which we make available to non-members as well. Additionally, the Guild hosts a bi-annual quilt show at the Central Florida Fair Grounds in Orlando, FL. We host an annual 3-day retreat and have at least two bus trips per year to a quilt show or other quilt related activity. Our monthly meetings include We bring in national teachers to host workshops and lectures. Some of our past teachers have included: Ricky Tims, Sue Nickels, Esterita Austin, Jan Krentz, Karen F. Buckley, Suzanne Marshall, Eric Drexler, and Karol Kusmaul– just to name a few.

Margaret Travis Trunk Show
Our September meeting will feature a trunk show by Margaret Travis, owner and Designer-in-Chief of Eazy Peazy Quilts (www.eazypeazyquilts.com). Some of you may remember Margaret as the maker of the quilt that took 2nd place in the large/medium applique category at the 2007 Cabin Fever Quilt Show – Margaret claims this is one of the highlights of her quilting career!. It is her first (and only) heirloom quilt.
Margaret’s trunk show will focus on her Eazy Peazy Quilt patterns. These designs feature well-written instructions illustrated with pictures. Suitable for all skill levels, her designs include handbags, totes, accessories, useful household items plus a line of helpful aids for the handicapped.
