History: 

This is 1 of 2 quilts brought to Australia from England by Julie Atkinson's grand parents when they went back for a trip in 1956. " I don't think they were new at that time. They were possibly made by a group of ladies who met of an evening to do the quilting. I met the last of my great aunts in South Shields in 1967, Meg Thwaites. She would have been in her 80s then."
