The Cypress Creek Quilters Guild put their collective talents together this year. Members joined forces to make a block each month, with those blocks being assembled to create more than 80 quilts that were donated to local charities.
The quilts were donated to Sunrise of Pasco County Domestic and Sexual Violence Center, the Redeeming Love Foster Closet and the Oasis Pregnancy Care Center.
The local guild meets the second Monday of the month at the Jimmie B. Keel Library, 2902 W. Bearss Ave., in Tampa, and each Thursday that school is in session at the Land O’ Lakes Recreation Complex, 3032 Collier Parkway.
The guild’s mission is to foster the art of quilting, according to Jennifer Ackart, the group’s president.

The quilters also made 391 pillowcases for Ryan’s Cases for Smiles — an organization that distributes cheerful handmade pillowcases to hospitalized children.
