19th Century Patchwork Divas | 25 Years of Scraps
Established in 1997, the Patchwork Divas became a group of quilting friends who got together to exchange blocks based on common interests in 19th Century quilts, blocks and fabrics. They started out with a small group of twelve members and only one rule: to make blocks using only 1800s reproduction fabrics, which were just beginning to appear on the market. Be sure to visit to view this amazing collection featuring the reproduction of historic quilts and discover more about this dynamic group. Their book: 19th Century Patchwork Divas' Treasury of Quilts showcases many of their quilts.
Diana Fox, winner of the 2022 Evolutions Call for Entry Exhibit, was honored with first prize, which included having a solo exhibit at RMQM.
She began as a traditional quilter in 1983, transitioned to art quilts in 2007, and has never looked back. Her work has moved from a flat art quilt into the sculptural realm, removing negative space and engaging the area in and around each piece. Diana prefers to dye much of her own fabric for her creations. She has had numerous pieces juried into national shows and has mounted a very successful solo exhibition. Diana is a Juried Artist member of Studio Art Quilt Associates as well as being a member of numerous arts and quilting organizations. Additionally, she is a member of an invitational art quilt group, 4 Common Corners. Diana is passionately committed to volunteering, animal welfare, and to environmental sustainability.
