Story: 

"I don't know who made this quilt. It was on my Grandmother's bed for as long as I can remember - 60 odd years - she had new bedroom furniture made in 1911, perhaps this was when she acquired it - or made it. Her name was Louisa Jacobs of Wandearah, Sth Aust."
Louisa lived at 'Broughton House', Wandearah.
