Made by Barbara McCabe in 1966-1967 while living at Echuca Victoria. Owned by Barbara McCabe. Barbara and her husband David were school teachers and moved around Victoria, from Echuca to Research to Highton [in] Geelong. Barbara made a number of quilts in this style during the 1960s and early 1970s as bedcoverings for the family. When they ended their life as bed coverings, they were/are used as car boot liners, packing around furniture, etc.


Patchwork quilt made from rectangles of mostly woollen fabrics sewn in strips and then stitched together. Fabrics left over from dressmaking projects. Machine stitched. Colours mainly green, purple, blue, pink, pastels, in plain, checks and spots. No padding or quilting. Lining is an old bedspread.
