A Finished Quilt (and a Mountain)

Freycinet National Park

This weekend my family and I visited beautiful and world renowned Freycinet National Park on Tasmania’s East Coast (Australia).

This is a spectacular part of the world and we completed a challenging four hour return climb to the top of Mount Amos. From here, we were able to see amazing views of famous Wineglass Bay.

It was an incredibly windy day and apart from one brief meltdown moment in a particularly difficult section, my children (and I for that matter!) did remarkably well coping with the rock scrambling and steep ascent. So proud of you guys!

When we first planned this weekend away, I had visions of showing you photos of my latest completed quilt from the summit. Due to the gusty winds and the arduous climb, I am thankful that I decided not to take my quilt up the mountain. I am also incredibly thankful that we all made it down safely!

We instead took my quilt out for a few nice shots on Sunday.

I pieced together the back using my leftover fabrics…

and I quilted it using straight lines, outlining the navy blue sashing and using one of my favourite prints (Lark Persimmon) for the binding.

This quilt was made following the Garden Fence tutorial at Hyacinth Quilt Designs.

  1. We are glad you didn’t get blown off Mount Amos Deb. They are great shots you took from the top.
    Can only imagine where your quilt may have ended up if you took it with you on the climb and tried to display it with Wineglass Bay in the background.
    Spiky Bridge is a beaut setting for your latest creation.

  2. Love, love love these quilt photos at Freycinet Deb. It’s one of my favourite places in Tassie and your quilt looks spectacular here. And I admire you for carrying it all the way up too. I really enjoy the process of taking photos of my special quilts and taking them to a location like this is lots of fun. Good on ya Deb!
