The quilt was owned by Vida Myhill Taylor (maiden name unknown) and then after her death, by her husband the Rev. Frederick Taylor. It is thought to have been made in England. It is not used now. Vida Myhill Taylor came out from England and settled in Coolamon NSW. Quite late in life she married the Rev. Frederick Taylor. There were no children. Vida was known locally as a great seamstress and knitter. She died in the early 1980s. In about 1984 the Rev. Taylor gave the quilt to Mary Robertson.


The suffolk puffs are mainly cotton in a wide variety of colours and plain and patterned materials. The puffs are small squares rather than the more usual circles. The backing is teal satin hand stitched to the top. There is a teal bow at one end. There is no padding.
