History

Made by Isobel McLean at 'Big Ben' Gundagai NSW. Previously owned by Isobel, now owned by the Gundagai Museum. The wool filling came from the pet sheep which was shorn with blade shears. The fleece was then washed and used for padding.

Description

Padding is made from spun wool, backing is cotton satin and the quilt is edged with a pink cotton satin ruffle.
