Quilts at the Art Gallery

We took Ma and Pa to the art gallery last week to see the McCubbin exhibition. They really enjoyed seeing the lovely paintings and while they looked at that, we wandered around some of the other areas and came across some Australian quilts. It was interesting to see them and so good that quilts are being collected from our short quilting history in Australia. This one was a hexagon quilt.
These were very tiny log cabins. The logs were less that 1/2" wide.
And this blurry one was made with woollen fabrics and was a "wagga", which is a useful quilt usually made from wool suiting fabric.
