History

The maker is unknown. This cot quilt was purchased by Perth resident Marie Hobbs from a second hand charity shop and was thought to date from the 1940s. Marie used it as a crawling rug for her grandchildren and later donated it to The Pioneer Women's Hut in New South Wales [where] it is displayed occasionally.

Description
