The quilt was made as a fundraiser for the bowling club at Wollstonecraft, Sydney NSW and was raffled. Bonnie Johnston won it about 1960 and when she died in 1999 it passed to her daughter in SA. It is not used.


For several years this quilt had appeared on the trading table at the Wollstonecraft Bowling Club (Sydney) but there were no buyers. It was then suggested that it was raffled and Bonnie Johnston won it.
