When this quilt came to me I immediately fell in love with it.
In 1981 Glynn and I toured around Australia in a camper van.Yep that’s me at The Devil’s Marbles.
The Australian prints seemed like old friends.They bought back so many memories. The colour used in the alternative diamonds evokes the colour of ochre rock in the Outback. I pondered for some time about how to quilt this one. In the end I went for Boomerang shapes with an Aboriginal art style ( I hope) snake shape running through the middle.
In the dark borders I put a narrow up and down matchstick quilting.
Thanks for popping by
