Quilt Hanging at Loch

View of Hill Near Loch

Yesterday found me in the lovely little town of Loch for their annual Quilt Hanging. It was a very warm humid day, so it was extremely pleasant to wander around slowly without my offspring. I was so caught up in the now, that I barely took any photos to capture the event (not necessarily a bad thing, but leaves this post looking a little bereft). Here is one shot that I quickly snapped of the Post Office.

The town really rises to the occasion, there were quilts on almost all of the shops and public buildings, and many eateries to refuel in. My mother, her friend Kaye and I had a lovely lunch is the colourfully named “Hard Loch Cafe”.

There was quite a good display of historic quilts in one of the halls, which was really interesting, but my best photo was of the ceiling decorations, which I thought were just beautiful.

Here is a detail of a quilt I was particularly taken with. According to the notes (that I no longer have) this was a first quilt by the maker, who confessed to having had a little help from her mother. My apologies to this quilter that I do not have her details to record here.

I really loved the colour combinations, such a delicate green.
