The samples are examples of products made at the Returned Sailors and Soldiers Mill in Geelong but discontinued before 1960. They were used to show shops what materials were available. The samples were given to Mr Robert Anderson, an apprentice fitter and turner at the mill between 1960-1965. His mother, Mrs Lucy Anderson, sewed the samples into quilts in the early 1960s. This is one quilt of three.


A brown quilt made from woven samples of woollen striped fabric in browns and olive greens. The pieces are machine stitched together. It has an off-white backing which is machined and hand sewn into place.
