Quilt made c. 1927. "Rose and Arthur Hudson (my parents) were married and resided in Lebanon Pennsylvania, USA. The Quaker Community made the quilt as a wedding present for them. The quilt was used later in the UK. When I migrated to Australia my parents gave it to me." [Arlene Crane]

The quilt is currently on display at Azelia Ley Homestead Museum, Manning Park, Hamilton Hill Western Australia.
