Patchwork and Quilting in the National Museum of Australia

Margaret Rolfe

The stories behind the pieces of patchwork and quilting held in the collection of the National Museum of Australia. A quilt made by a grandmother for her granddaughter, a crazy patchwork cushion, a blanket appliquéd and embroidered in a German prison camp during World War II and the quilts made for the Bicentennial Banner in 1988, are some of the items featured. A lovely gift for someone interested in patchwork and quilting. 60 pages.
