This cot quilt was made by Doris Rattay in the Barossa Valley of South Australia in 1963. It was made from second hand materials that would give warmth, including parts of old skirts and blankets. Doris donated it to The Pioneer Women's Hut. It is displayed occasionally at the museum.


Machine pieced cot quilt made from squares of material including tweed, wool, blanket and pyjama material. The squares are joined in rows with colours randomly placed. There is a pink satin edging. The backing is part of a pale pink blanket.
