History

The suffolk puff flowers were stitched by Jess Bennett, grandmother of the present owner and Jessie Dunstan, mother of the present owner Yvonne Murray. Yvonne added the red path to link the flowers and completed the quilt so it was made by three generations of women. The individual suffolk puff flowers made by Jessie Dunstan and Jess Bennett, lay neglected in chests and cupboards until Yvonne's sister gave them to her and suggested she make pot holders from them and the finished quilt was the result.

Description

This quilt is made using hand stitched suffolk puff flowers in various shades of blue linked by a red 'path' with no padding or backing.
