History

This wall hanging, or the quilt from which it came, was made in England by a sewing maid to Queen Victoria using scraps from her dresses. It passed by maternal descent from the present owner's great grandmother to Daisy Aylmore grandmother, Daisy Parker and is now owned by Kaye Sittlely. It came to Sandy Creek in South Australia and for the past 100 years has been in Western Australia, first in the country and now in the city.

Description

Probably originally a quilt, now part is a wall hanging. Hexagons randomly placed and backed with black cotton added later. There is a padding of carded cotton stitched by hand. The hanging has a twisted cord around it, once crimson, now brownish.
