Whole Cloth Quilt

Quilt made by Jane Naisby, Coanwood, Northumberland. It was made of a very fine linen and beautifully hand quilted. Jane made the quilt for her trousseau. She married Jon Routledge who came to start a coal mine in Ermelo. She gave the quilt to her daughter Eileen, who gave it to the present owner, Joan Mousley who lives on a farm in the Bethlehem district. This quilt was used as an ironing blanket and rescued by Louise Rheeder!
