History

Made by Anne Gardener the present owner, in 1955 while living on a sheep property 'Calala' near Hannaford, Queensland. The quilt is now at another location and is used occasionally. The quilt was used on children's beds and also while listening to the radio at night when it was chilly. The owner mentioned that their car was not air conditioned so the quilt was taken on trips to provide warmth.
