History: 

Made by Jean Winchester at her cousin Hazel Jarmyn's needlework classes (SA) in 1960. Owned by Jean.

Story: 

"I was given some black and white striped material & wondered what I could do with it. I had only then taken an interest in some kind of needlework, after our children had grown up. I used the above material, it became the main part of the quilt, with lovely pieces from friends it became a double bed quilt."
[Jean Winchester]
