The quilt was made by 'Grandma Jackson' in Melbourne in the 1930s. It was later owned by 'Grandma Renton' and is now owned by J & P Pedler. It is framed and hangs in their underground home which has a constant temperature of 23 degrees C. In 1998 it was restored by Kath Squire aged 90. 'Grandma Jackson', who made the quilt, was a cleaner at the Tivoli Theatre in Melbourne in the 1920s and 1930s and collected material scraps from which she made the quilts and two pillow shams.


Crazy patchwork cot quilt made from a wide variety of materials, patterned and plain. Some seams are overstitched with feather stitch and herringbone. One of a pair. There is no padding. The backing is taffeta.
