What We Do…
Florida Cabin Fever Quilters Guild opened its doors to Central Florida almost 30 years ago. Since that time we have hosted several quilt shows and our members have produced countless numbers of quilts for personal use as well as for community service. Some of our annual programs include a mystery quilt, a challenge quilt and an original 12-month block of the month program which is available to non-members as well. 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. At least 2-3 times per year – we bring in national teachers to host workshops and lectures. Some of our past teachers have included: Ricky Timms, Sue Nickels, Esterita Austin, Jan Krentz, Karen F. Buckley, Suzanne Marshall, Eric Drexler, and most lately, 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 says this is one of the highlights of her quilting career!. It was 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.
Donation Quilt Update:
Our 2015 Quilt Fever donation quilt, Dutch Kaleidoscope, will be at Wandering Stitches until August 16 -this will be your last chance to buy tickets, get your Row-by-Row pattern and have your Toscana Blending Shop Hop passport stamped there! Volunteers to chaperone the quilt, and sell raffle tickets, are still needed for some dates – please contact Roberta Duval if you are able to help out with this. Remember – helping out with the quilt show gets your name entered into our special drawing, so don’t miss out.
