Seven Guilds and their Quilts Fundraiser

Mini-Quilt Challenge

Broward Quilt Expo (BQE) and History Fort Lauderdale present “Seven Guilds and their Quilts” a fundraiser at the Historic New River Inn, Feb 28-March 1, 2020. 

Members of Coral Spring Quilters, East Sunrise Quilt Guild, Quilting in the Pines, South Florida Modern Quilt Guild, Southern Stars Quilt Guild, Ocean Waves and West Broward Quilters Guild are invited to create mini quilts in a Florida theme for this fundraising quilt challenge.

Each quilt will be available for purchase during the event with proceeds split between  History Fort Lauderdale and the participating guild whose member donated the quilt.

To participate in this charity event guild members may submit mini quilts depicting a Florida theme.  No hanging sleeve is needed as quilts will be hung using 3M mounting tape (due to the historic nature of the house, we cannot damage the walls).  Participants are encouraged to submit more than one mini-quilt.  More minis = more money.

Ribbons will be awarded by a Fort Lauderdale Commissioner. An open reception will be held (details to follow).

Quilt requirements:

  • Mini quilts must reflect a Florida theme or an historic site in Fort Lauderdale.
  • Quilt size should be at least 24 inches and not more than 48 inches total for all 4 sides or 24-inch diameter maximum for circles or other odd shapes
  • All quilts must have label on back that must contain the following info:
  • quilter’s name
  • title of quilt
  • year made
  • guild affiliation


You will need to register your guild with your guild rep at the February meeting.

Quilts will be collected at your guilds February meeting or as directed by your guild. Alternate drop-off can be arranged by contacting
