The makers were two aunts of Sir Murray Tyrell at Carrajung, South Gippsland Victoria. They used the buggy rug when they went to collect Murray Tyrell from the train when he was coming home from boarding school for holidays.

George Martin donated it to The Pioneer Women's Hut. It is not used and is occasionally displayed at the museum.


A buggy rug of machine pieced patchwork of men's suiting samples. There is a large diamond of patches in the centre, bordered by rectangles. There is no padding. The backing is wholecloth tartan wool.
