This is the quilt that I had concerns about whether I had pulled the top tight enough when basting. My teacher told me it was fine and to “get it done”!
So here is Black Stump Creek quilt.
Why the name? If you look closely at the four corners in the border, you’ll see why.
Can’t see it? Do these photos help?
Each of the corners shows a different view of old Australian houses for common folk. “The Black Stump” is an Australian saying meaning a long way out, remote. You can read more about it on Wikipedia if you’re interested.
I’ll show you the back of the quilt but it’s not that exciting although I do love the way the pattern looks so different from a distance.
The fabric, which I bought on clearance, is “Fireworks” from the Colourblast range sold at Spotlight (Australia).
Blue dye came out of this quilt when I was sewing the binding on.
At first I blamed the backing but afterwards realised it was probably the binding fabric that was at fault.
So I have yet to wash this baby – I need to remember to buy colour catchers when I am next in the supermarket.
The good news is WM was able to clean my machine (with methylated spirits) and now it looks as good as new!
Which leads me into my trick question: can you work out what this is?
Come back tomorrow and I’ll tell you!
