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]

"The Rajah "quilt" is a patchwork and appliquéd bed cover or coverlet. It is in pieced medallion or framed style: a popular design style for quilts in the British Isles in the mid 1800's. There is a central field of white cotton decorated with appliquéd (in broderie perse) chintz birds and floral motifs. This central field is framed by 12 bands or strips of patchwork printed cotton. The quilt is finished at the outer edge by white cotton decorated with appliquéd daisies on three sides and inscription in cross stitch surrounded by floral chintz attached with broderie perse on the fourth side. All fabrics used in the Rajah quilt are cotton with the exception of small amounts of linen and silk threads. The quilt shows evidence of being produced by many hands."
