Dixie Quilt Guild February Meeting

Yesterday was the Dixie Quilt Guild's February Meeting.
I am always so impressed with the amazing talent from our guild. We are surrounded by so many award winners. Four from our group were selected to go to Road to California last month.
Show and Tell is one of my favorite parts of the meeting.

This art quilt will be part of a show at a local gallery.

One member took Annie Unrein's Quilted Photography class.
This picture was made without any sewing, except at the end where you can quilt the completed piece.
She used 1/2 inch squares mapped out from a specialized computer program

Many of our members are International travelers.
Suzanne Dandoy has spent quite a bit of time in Africa. While there, she collected beautiful fabrics.

Suzanne also made this wall hanging out of men's ties.

Margaret Miller made this fun quilt using the new Lila Tueller Santorini line.
Doesn't this make you think Spring is right around the corner?

Another member just got back from Japan where she purchased a lot of Indigo. She had a display at the back of the room of some of her fabrics, but I didn't get back there in time to take pictures.

Patti VanOordt's quilt was selected for Road To California.
Patti's quilt also is also featured on the cover of the IMQA (International Machine Quilters Assn.) Calendar this year!
Congratulations Patti!
Beautiful work.

great looking quilts, the guild I use to belong to was quite small and you never saw this kind of talent!

You do have an outstanding group of quilters in your guild. It makes me wish that I lived closer so I could also be a part. All of the quilts were out of this world. WOW!

This stuff isn't for the faint of heart. This is called superior quilting even for Dixie Divas.
