ST. GEORGE — Featuring over 300 pieces, the 2017 quilt show “Gems of the Desert” presented by Dixie Quilt Guild will take place April 13-14 at the Dixie Center St. George.

This year’s featured quilters are Marilyn Badger and Claudia Clark Myers, world renowned quilters who have developed innovative quilting techniques. Many of their award-winning quilts will be on display.

Over 300 quilts will be on display by local quilters, both judged and nonjudged. The show will also feature a vendor mall with 37 vendors.

Leading up to the show, multiple classes are being offered starting on Wednesday, including one taught by nationally known teacher Marti Michell. Michell has taught in 49 states and 26 countries. In addition to making quilts, she is also an author, business owner, fabric designer and quilt collector.
