History

This unfinished quilt was made by Mrs Buckley, the great grandmother of the present owner, in South Australia early this century. It was then owned by her daughter Gwendalyn Zelma Blanche Hynes (grandmother of Amanda Smith) until 1989 when Amanda claimed it just 10 days before Gwendalyn's death. It is not used now. "My memories of this quilt were when I was sick at my grandmother's house (she lived around the corner from my house) it would be on my bed, an old fashioned old bed with curved top and base with a feather mattress."
[Amanda Smith, 15 March 1998]
