Made in 1944 by Helen Blandford's mother (died 1998) for her first child Helen. Now owned by Helen. It is not used and is stored in a blanket chest. "My mother was not a sewer so this was a real labour of love. I wish I had asked her more about it and where she got the particularly fine lace from." [Helen Blandford, 8 May 1999]


Bassinet quilt. Pink satin top and backing overlaid with lace. Machine and hand sewn. The padding is possibly a nappy. It is part of a set that includes a pillow cover.
