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]


Patchwork quilt of hexagon patches with a large central group of 14 rows, then groups or 'flowers' of 6 patches placed over the rest of the quilt. The colours are red, black, white and blue, in a mixture of stripes, florals and plains. No padding. Backing is a double bed sheet. Hand sewn.
