Song of the Unsung
120cmh x 80w
Chux dishcloths,cotton homespun, organza, old lace tablecloth, buttons
Pieced, stamped and machine quilted' in the ditch'
Created for the Celebration of the Centenary of Federation Quilt Exhibition, this quilt captures the 'get on with the job, do it economically, add a little something special' attitude to life held by my grandmother, Nora Lightburne (1898 - 1996). It is my salute to all those whose efforts quietly underpinned so many achievements of the last 100 years.
