History: 

Made by Jane Ellen Meynink (born Crothers, 1894-1983) in Brisbane (Qld) who began quilting in her retirement aged 70. The quilt was the 6th of 6 quilts designed and made by Jane. Owned by her daughter-in-law Barbara Meynink (born Campbell). Known as Jeannie's quilt (Jane Ellen's pet name). Used only on "high days and holidays!"

Story: 

"This quilt, no 6, replaces no1, which wore out. It was used constantly. Also we got a bigger bed & Jane Ellen offered to make another quilt for us. The quilt was laid out on the floor to decide upon colour placement & arrangement for the overall design. It has an hexagonal centre."
[Barbara Meynink]
