Spotlighting Diva Donna

Donna is a long time member of The Monday Night Divas Bee.  She completed a quilt earlier this year with a great back story.

Donna was an exchange student during one year of high school.  She lived with Oma in Belgium and has remained close throughout the years.  Donna collected t-shirts from Oma's Grandchildren (and a few from Texas) and made her a king size quilt.

Earlier this year, Donna was able to travel to Belgium  and give Oma her quilt for her 80th birthday.  Oma uses it to cover her living room couch, so everyone that enters her home can enjoy it.  She was surprised and delighted.


That is Oma on the right.

Note the two pillows and pillowcase with photos. 
 Another family member had this fabric made by a website like Spoonflower.

Diva's Block Exchange

I belong to a Quilting Bee called "The Monday Night Divas".  In the past, we have exchanged 2 1/2" strips twice, so we got brave and decided to exchange blocks.
 The block is scrappy.  The only rules are each block must contain a piece of burgundy fabric and no obvious holiday fabrics.
We will exchange April - December.  Each Diva should end up with 99 blocks.  We are turning in extra blocks to be used in a charity quilt for our Quilt Guild.

 Below are the blocks that I turned in.

I finally remembered to take a photo before I turned them in.


Diva Tina suggested this exchange and got her idea from this youtube video.

The Owl Was Too Creepy
Pieced and Quilted by Casey K.
There was suppose to be an owl flying over the horseman, but
the quilter found it too creepy and left it off.
