History

The quilt was made in 1965 by Miss Olive Budden who lived at the Strathallen Home for the Aged in Macleod, Melbourne. Olive Budden gave it to Glenda Wilkinson, the present owner. "Miss Olive Budden, maker of this quilt, had access to offcuts from a coat factory. She made scores of quilts from these and took great pleasure in giving them to her friends and acquaintances. This was given to me for my children to use as a 'car rug' in the days before cars were heated." [Glenda Wilkinson, 21 October 1998]

Description

The quilt consists of two layers of random pieces of woollen coating and suiting materials machined together, very dark colours on one side and a mixture of dark and lighter on the other. The two layers are quilted together with a row of machining and has a folded and machine stitched edge. There is no padding.
