Doreen Vincent made the quilt in 1935 for her great grand daughters Janine and Eva Chick as a cot quilt. It is stored at the home of Mr.and Mrs. L.R. and F.E Chick (grandchildren) but is owned by Janine and Eva Chick.

Story: 

"This quilt is a replica of quilts made each year by the Ladies Guild at Holy Trinity Cathedral Wangaratta. Each member sewing together by hand a block 8 inches wide. Each separate piece hand sewn, and tacked, and hemmed over a six sided piece of heavy brown paper, joined around a centre piece and at the meetings put in a big box to be finally joined up. Grand Mother Doreen Vincent, each year had the job to join up all the collection up on the kitchen table and tack them all on to a quilt size length of washed calico. Then when finished the quilt was donated to a church home. When the great grand children arrived a quilt was lovingly made for Janine and Eva's cot. Bits of everybodys dresses and very colourful. Leaving behind a loving memory of great Gran for all our family to treasure." [Faye Chick 26.11.1998]
