This Chronicle wildflower quilt was made by Miss Elsie Blake (1885-1967) of 'Rocky Farm', Bull Creek South Australia c. 1933 from patterns published in The Adelaide Chronicle at that time. It was later owned by Margaret Rolfe, Canberra ACT and is now part of the collection of the Embroiderers' Guild of South Australia Museum.


This Chronicle wildflower quilt has alternating squares of green and fawn headcloth embroidered with Australian wildflowers on the fawn squares and stylised floral motifs on the green squares. It is bordered and backed with the same green material. It is padded.
