Florida Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) members, artists who create textile works using a variety of art-making methods, were invited to submit their interpretation of the exhibit theme: Floridian Flavors: Characters, Culture, and Cuisine.

Floridians are proud of our state’s diversity and inclusion. People in Florida come from all over the globe and all walks of life. We have astronauts, mermaids, cowboys, pirates, princesses, and pioneers. This collection of juried art quilts celebrates the rich and varied cultures, clothing, food, holidays, languages, history, and customs of our inhabitants, visitors, and even the rare individuals who are Florida-born and lifelong residents.
