Any Aussies recognize this?


Detail of Jenny´s Quilt

This technique was (is) part of a major quilting (Maybe batting) advertising campaign - I have loved it ever since I first saw it. But I think that it is a technique for me to admire, not to try out myself.

Do you mean the location. I think it might be a representation of the 12 Apostles which are found along The Great Ocean Road in Victoria, but I stand to be corrected

How cool! I also think (know) it's the 12 Apostles. I saved a cheese wrapper that I bought at Sam's Club for three weeks because it had a picture of that wonderful place on it!

Yes definately Victoria to the West of Melbourne, through our second largest city of Geelong and then what is rated as one of the best drives in the world. One I would rather drive than be a passenger.
I won a holiday a couple of years ago at a place called Appolo Bay and we had glorious weather and it was a wonderful drive down and back.

I am sorry you will have to cut and paste these links. It would be nice if they were active. I have put them into my blog so that you can go there and they are active. It is about 2 hours from where I live amd is a glorious spot. Outside our Port Phillip Bay and on the Ocean coastline.

Yep - The Twelve Apostles, which are sadly 12 no more due to the ravages of time. But this quilt is a beautiful tribute to them.
