Dixie Quilt Guild May Meeting

We realize it is not the month of May yet, but yesterday the Dixie Quilt Guild held our May meeting anyway.
We have a big event coming to our little town of St. George next Saturday May 1st, which normally would be our day to gather.
Our community will be hosting the Iron Man competition, and our small town (population around 72,000) will be transformed. The media expects 30,000 people to be involved. We have been asked to either serve as a volunteer, or stay off the streets.
Most of the major roads will be completely blocked off from 7am until midnight. *On a personal note, I am not sure how I will even get out of my subdivision, because one of the biking routes goes through our area.
Here is a Show and Tell from our meeting.

We have such amazing applique work coming from our group. I always stand in awe of the talent.

This quilt was a donation to our humanitarian group. Nice donation!

Don't you love the setting for all these poppies?

A civil war quilt from a class at Zion Retreat a few years ago.

Block of The Month quilt taught at Quilted Works in 2009.

Bev continues to work in using up her stash. A great way to use up leftover blues, or any other color that might have gathered in your collections.

A Sally Collins design.
Sally will be coming to our guild as a guest lecturer and teacher this coming November.
If you are interested in taking classes, be sure and contact Linda Sidlow in care of the Dixie Quilt Guild.

Ginny Beyer design.

John Flynn was in town a few months ago as a National guest teacher for our guild.
Our guild member said she has worked night and day making Wedding Ring was from one of his classes.

Since Ricci taught her Going To Market quilt, many of us have been drawn to making one too. Margaret Miller has started a version in florals and polka dots.

Lovely lovely stuff. My sister Polly has a friend in her exercise class that will be in the Iron Man. Incredible what training has to be done. My sister is volunteering, too. It will be fairly amazing what happens to ST. George next week.
