History

"As a clothing machinist, mainly coats, we were given scraps for bound buttonholes. I saved pieces and made squares which were sewn on an old Singer treadle sewing machine. It has travelled all over Australia and is still used. The quilt was made summer (February) 1956 at Sydenham NSW." [Patricia Galbraith, 12 September 1998]

Description
