This quilt was won in a raffle at Maldon Victoria at the turn of the century when the present owner's maternal great grandmother, Sarah Jackson, was visiting her brother and sister-in-law Robert and Lillie Jane London. It has passed by maternal descent to the present owner Sandra Jones. It is not used and is stored in the owner's home.
