Dixie Diva April Night Meeting

As busy as every one's schedules are, and with all that is going on in life, one of the highlights of the month is always the Diva gatherings. Our group was small in numbers this month, but we always laugh and just enjoy being together.
Thanks to Verny for hosting.
Jan K. brought this just completed quilt made with Ginny Beyer fabrics.
Pictures never do a quilt justice. I wish you could see the impact of colors in real life. Absolutely stunning.

By Jan K.
A few months ago Bev taught a monthly workshop for the Dixie Quilt Guild.
She used the book Fabulous Fractures by Brenda Esslinger.


Margaret has been quite busy serving as a missionary for our church. She still finds time to produce quilts for her family.

Look at these bright and fun fabrics.

Another quilt by Margaret from a class last year.

Bev is in the process of down sizing and has just listed her large home for sale. I've watched her this last year work on quilts that use up her stash.

This is a great scrappy quilt, and I should have Bev feature some of the ideas she has used on Rae Ann's new blog Stash Manicure
(oh... good idea)
By the way, if you live in the St. George area, Bev will be having a yard sale on April 24th with fabric and items from her sewing room.

This is just one small corner from one room that shows you Bev's large collection of fabrics.
Contact me (nedras@mstar.net) if you need her address and more details on the yard sale.

I just love that first quilt you showed! And the last photo - I would love that collection of fabric to go through but I guess I will be satisfied with my much smaller collection for now as it keeps me plenty busy as it is :)

I keep telling Mr. Creations that my stash is NOTHING compared to some I've seen. I'll have to show him this post.

Love the first quilt and then the next one and then the next one... Your groups have so many talented ladies in them.
If I flew into for the garage sale I'ld have to charter my own plane back to carry it all. What a great sale that is going to be. Then she can start over and what girl doesn't like to go shopping.

The divas do it again don't they.
