History

Made by Beth Chamberlain c. 1968 for the family's beach house at Cape Paterson Victoria. Owned by her daughter Mrs Gillian Albers. Known as the 'Pankina' Quilt (means 'a happy place'). "I made the quilt mainly from my sewing scraps as I had a young family at the time. I learned how to do hexagons from a magazine article. I had no idea how to make a 'proper' quilt. I made it especially for a holiday home we were building at the beach and blue was to be the colour scheme. It was in use there (at Cape Paterson) for about 10 years. I stored it for some time then gave it to my daughter about 15 years ago."
[Beth Chamberlain]
