History

Brought from England by Lily Stormer pre 1920. Lily married and when she died in 1963 the quilt was found in her tin trunk. It then passed to her daughter Mary Robertson. It is not used now. Following the death of her parents in England, Lily Stormer (1899-1963) came to Australia with her brother in 1920. She went first to Sydney NSW and then to Junee where she worked as a housemaid. In 1927 she married and there were seven children, five girls and two boys. Mary Robertson, the present owner of the quilt, is her daughter. Mary does not remember her mother sewing.
