Story: 

"Donated to Centre Quilters by Ted and Fran Waldron, Wangaratta. The quilt was made by Ted's mother, Jessie, who lived in the Sunraysia district of Victoria. - the centre of the dried friut industry. The 'batting' in the quilt is hessian - presumably hessian which was used on the drying racks. It appears that this quilt was originally made as 2 single bed quilts and joined together at a later date."
