The WILPF Photo Quilt

WILPF Photo Quilt - Front
WILPF Photo Quilt - Back

Designed and made at a one day PeaceKnits workshop with Queanbeyan Quilters in December 2014. Logan's Patchwork Fabrics provided the 48 Australian indigenous, flora and fauna fabric squares on the back of the photo quilt. Photos on the front of the quilt were sourced from WILPF Australia History Project, to help mark in April 2015 the 100th anniversary of the founding of Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. Photos of five significant founders of the peace women's league in Australia, placed in chronological order on the quilt, are:

  • Eleanor Moore (1875-1949)
  • Doris Amelia Blackburn (1889-1970)
  • Irene Greenwood (1898-1992)
  • Margaret Holmes (1909-2009)
  • Stella Cornelius (1919-2010)
