CT Quilters Group

Hello!
My name is Kathy T. and I would like to let you know about our QOV group in Tampa, FL. We call ourselves the CT Quilters – named after our Under Our Wings quilt shop sponsor, The Crafty Threads Quilt Shop.

We are a relatively new group and we're growing and adding new members each month. Right now we are concentrating on donating our quilts to the Poly-Trauma Unit at the James A Haley VA Hospital here in Tampa – we've been able to make and donate 15 quilts this year to that facility. These have been counted and registered with the QOVF.

I'd really like to thank Bonnie Hunter for our "regular" pattern – the "Fourth of July!". We make up block kits from this pattern (either 4-patches or snowballs) that quilters can check out at the Shop and return at their convenience. Our group then assembles the scrappy tops and gets them to our volunteer quilters. We've also made up several "alternative" patterns from donated panels and fabrics.

We are also so thankful for Le Ann Weaver at Persimmon Quilts and her fantastic mystery quilts. You can see at least three of her mysteries that our volunteers have made up recently at our blog site (#'s 4, 20 and 24).

I'd like to invite you to visit out blog at:

We have a wonderful group of quilters that are enjoying contributing to the QOV mission. Your comment and/or advice is always welcome!
