History

The quilt was made by the Euroa Victoria branch of the CWA to raffle in 1931. It was later donated to the Euroa and District Historical Society and displayed in the Euroa museum. In 1991, through a bequest, a purpose built cabinet was made to display the quilt. The president of the CWA at the time was Mrs Currie who is said to have inspired members with the idea of the quilt and taught the techniques to CWA members.
