Dixie Diva Block Exchange

Our local quilt guild (Dixie Quilt Guild in St. George, Utah) recently held their bi-annual quilt show. One friendship group, The Dixie Diva's showed an example of the quilts they made with a block exchange.
The premise for the exchange went as followed:
Each participant provided a focus fabric, along with matching fabrics in a bag marked with their name.
Each month the group selected a block to make, and made 6 samples. The next month the bag was passed to another group member, and another block was selected. By the end of the exchange, each Diva had a pile of blocks all done in their own fabric choice.

It was interesting to see how each Diva chose to set their individual blocks.

Margaret Miller's quilt was done in reds, greens and yellows.

One of our employees, Ricci Lindley used wonderful batik's.

Ricci's quilt was beautifully quilted by April Sproule of Sproule Studios in Fortuna, CA.
April used Rainbows Autumn Leaves by Superior Threads.

Verny Thompson's quilt.

Nedra Sorensen, another employee here at Superior Threads used Earth colored tones.


  1. Lovely quilts, a feast for the eyes.

  2. I never tire of going to Quilt shows. The colors or themes of Quilts shown are truly inspiring. Sometimes it is hard to see, but one just needs to look harder for their beauty.
