History

Made in 1966 by Margaret Little. Owned by Dulcie Williams. The quilt was originally two quilts, made as a baby welcoming gift for twins. As the children grew up the two quilts were joined together and so had an extended life.
The Little family were a pioneer family in the Miles district of Queensland and they provided the feathers for the filling.
