The quilt was made by Annie Hulland in 1957 for her first grandson Andrew. It was then used by her daughter, Heather McClounan, for the other 3 children. They lived on a farm at Hopetoun, Victoria. Heather McClounan gave the quilt to June Brown in 1998 to care for and use as a historical record. It is not used now and is stored in a cotton bag in a cupboard in June Brown's home. The material was originally purchased to make curtains but was used to make this functional cot quilt instead.

Heather McClounan said of her mother: "My mother was a very thrifty person, as there were five children in our family, born between 1929 and 1939. I fancy it (the quilt) was a necessity. She made this quilt for my son Andrew and it was subsequently used for my other three children."

  1. Such a wonderful thing to stumble across! Heather was my grandmother, I’m the only child of her daughter Eve who passed in 2000. Thank you for keeping such a beautiful piece of family history safe!
