Florida Quilt Project

The Florida Quilt Project ran from 2009 through 2012, seeking to find and record quilts currently in the state of Florida. The Sunshine State Quilters Association offered a grant program for groups to host Quilt Discovery Days in communities around the state, and sponsored the data entry of records from those events.
