About The Quilt

"Tied Together to Help the Community" was a 2014 volunteer collaboration by employees with the Florida Office of the Attorney General. Measuring seventy by eighty-seven inches, the quilt consists of over 175 ties contributed by the employees and was designed and constructed by four of them, also members of Quilters Unlimited of Tallahassee. The goal of creating the quilt was to raise funds for a worthy cause.

The quilt backing, borders and the light blue blocks are made from 100% cotton. The ties are made from various fabrics including cotton, rayon, polyester and silk. The blue background fabric is oxford cloth, a material commonly used for dress shirts, while the royal blue border and gold accent fabrics were chosen to match the colors on the seal of the Attorney General of Florida.

"Tied Together to Help the Community" was exhibited at the 33rd Annual Capital City Quilt Show at the Museum of Florida History in 2014.
