My Community is Louise’s latest quilt and is inspired by her love of Melbourne (a city that experienced 6 COVID lockdowns), and what she truly appreciated about it over the last few years. This quilt reflects how “her community” came together during a difficult time and features blocks inspired by healthcare workers, tradies, the local pub, the corner florist, a dog, the council swimming pool, even the 24/7 service station, and many more.

Louise hand pieced this quilt using acrylic templates and has written the instructions to reflect this. However, there are some simple shapes included where she has provided measurements for rotary cutting.

Of course, you can choose to machine piece this quilt if you so desire.
