Our purpose is to foster the art of quilting, to encourage a high standard of design and technique in all of its various forms, to educate and mentor members of the community in the art of quilting and to stimulate interest in the art of quilting through shows, workshops, classes and demonstrations. Last but certainly not least, to give back to our community through our charity outreach.
Our membership is composed of members from Brandon, Dade City, Land O Lakes, Lutz, Mulberry, New Port Richey, Odessa and Tampa. You can see that some of our members drive a few miles to the monthly meetings where they can enjoy programs, show & tell and build friendships with other quilters.

This quilt is a salute to Alphonse Mucha, a Czech Art Nouveau painter an decorative artist, who lived from 1860 to 1939. His 1897 lithograph entitled “Flower” is the central motif. The face and arm coloration utilizes Terrie Linn Kygar’s melted crayon technique from her book “Creative Quilts from Your Crayon Box.” Inspiration for the stylized flowers in the appliqué arch came from the book “Sophisticated Stitches” by Don Linn. Instructions for folded green silk hexagons came from “Folded Fabric Elegance” by Rami Kim. Dimensional flowers were inspired by examples in the books “Floral Dimensions” by Pauline Ineson and “Petal Play” by Joan Shay. Corner blocks utilize the “Stack and Whack” technique.
