History

Made by Jean Winchester at her cousin Hazel Jarmyn's needlework classes (SA) in 1960. Owned by Jean. "I was given some black and white striped material & wondered what I could do with it. I had only then taken an interest in some kind of needlework after our children had grown up. I used the above material [and] it became the main part of the quilt [that] with lovely pieces from friends, it became a double bed quilt."
[Jean Winchester]
