HistoryThe quilt was made by Miss Alma Birkin in Carwarp Victoria in 1968 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Carwarp School. It was raffled and the present owner, Mrs Christine Taylor, won the raffle. The quilt is stored in her parents home and is not used. The embroidered names on the quilt include students, parents, friends, anyone associated with the Carwarp School and surrounding area. "The border tells the story of special inhabitants, sporting clubs and numerous organisations over the years 1918-1968." [Alma Birkin] Every person who had a name embroidered received a numbered ticket. The quilt was then raffled and Mrs Christine Taylor (born Doering) was the winner.
