Loch

A whole month ago I went with some girlfriends (Debby and Julie) to visit the last annual Quilt Hanging in the little Victorian town of Loch, in the South Gippsland region.  Every year I have taken a photo from the same place, outside the Public Hall, looking towards the distant hills.  This year there was a cute little car parked in “my” spot.  Isn’t it lovely.

I was very taken with this quilt, which according to the notes is called “Inspired by Morell” by Jenny Coates.  There were too many people crowding around it to get a better picture of the whole thing.

This was the centre square.

I really liked this block.  I assume the quilt was inspired by the original quilt that this one seen on the Quiltsmith site was also inspired by, or perhaps it is a whole chain of inspiration, with the Quiltsmith Quilt as a link in the middle.

This block was another favorite.  The quilt had Broderie Perse Applique, Hand and Machine piecing.

Both the quilt above and the one below conspired to obscure their numbers from my photo.  I didn’t realise until I got home.  I can not deduce which ones they are from my booklet of notes, but I liked them both.

This one was hanging up vey high, from the second floor balcony of The Royal Hotel, where we had a very plesant lunch.

This Quilt is called Rainbow Whirligig by Clare Brown, machine quilted by Patchwork of Essendon.

Loch is a very pretty little town, with lovely street plantings of fruit trees, and flowers.  The end of the Quilt Hanging will leave a sad little place on my calender next year.
