I confess that my attendance was last minute; the magic of scheduled blog posts makes it appear I have been busily stitching along, but in truth I've been away the better part of the last couple of weeks and very behind in my work. I almost didn't go. At the last minute I decided I would regret missing the show and I'm awfully glad I went. I even remembered to take my camera.
Beverley began with a slide show and talk and then showed us some of these wonderful quilts in person.

This picture does not do justice to the beautiful thread painted guinea fowl Beverley stitched here. It's hard to tell, but it is exquisitely machine quilted with tiny feathers. I was not surprised to hear her say that she stitches on a Bernina. :)
This is the back of a two-sided quilt... (that's Beverley on the right)

This colourful quilt is appliqued with lizards.

Knights of Greystone Park is a quilt which needs to be seen in person; it literally sparkles with little jewels sewn in the night sky.

The thread work is amazing.
These are "bush babies" climbing a cactus. Look at the quilting detail - wow!
Beverley had a group of smaller quilts stitched by a variety of individuals which she allowed to be passed around the room.
