This unfinished calico quilt top with hand embroidered messages turned up in a second hand shop in Brighton, England about fifteen years ago for New Zealand soldiers in the First World War by members of the Timaru Church Guild in July 1917. Walton-on-Thames is an hour's drive, 52 miles or 83kms from Brighton. It has now found its way back to New Zealand.
