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 a 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 Fairgrounds in Orlando, FL. We host an annual retreat and as well as bus trips to a quilt shows and other quilt-related activities. We bring in national teachers to host workshops and lectures. Some of our past teachers been Ricky Tims, Sue Nickels, Esterita Austin, Jan Krentz, Karen F. Buckley, Suzanne Marshall, Eric Drexler, and Karol Kusmaul– just to name a few.

Next Meeting – April 6, 2015
Sandi Blackwell is a West Virginia artisan, teacher, designer, author and lecturer for both group and private lessons, on all methods of quilting. Sandi will be entertaining us with her lively lecture/demo based on her “Square-agonals®” technique as well as a trunk show of quilts made from her books and pattern line.
What is “Square-agonals”? It is a creative, easy technique for creating a diagonal set quilt without cutting any corner or setting triangles, no math calculations, and no sewing in diagonal rows! Easy enough for beginners and creative enough for the experienced!
Our 2015 Retreat page has been updated with information and a .pdf version of the retreat form. Watch for an online version coming soon!
