Citrus Ridge Decorative Artists' Quilt
Citrus Ridge Decorative Artists

The members of Citrus Ridge Decorative Artists, an affiliated chapter of the Society of Decorative Painters, have combined forces and hand painted squares for this beautiful quilt. We will have a special drawing in May of next year and one lucky winner will receive this beautiful 60 x 80 hand painted quilt. We are asking for a donation price of $5 per ticket or 3 tickets for $10. All chapter members will have tickets available. The quilt is called Wings Over Florida because all the birds and butterflies are native to the state of Florida. Some of the designs for the butterflies and birds are original Sherry Nelson, MDA designs. Sherry is known throughout the United States and across the world for her paintings of realistic birds and other wildlife, which she has taught for over 40 years.

If you are interested in obtaining tickets to have a chance to win this beautiful quilt, please click on the contact page and fill out the form. A member of the chapter will contact you.

This is currently our big fundraiser event for our chapter. Proceeds from the sale of tickets will help our chapter is so many ways. This helps us pay for top notch artists to come in for painting seminars for our chapter, helps us provide scholarship funds for the Society of Decorative Painters and to help us give back to the community in various philanthropic programs.
