Physical Description

White cotton quilt with a large central appliquéd red cross surrounded by signatures. The quilt is made up of 76 squares joined to and encircling the central red cross. Each small square is embroidered with a centred 2.5cm (diameter) red circle from which four signatures radiate out to each corner. The squares are 8cm x 10cm. The large central red cross is equivalent to four squares. The squares are joined by hand and the pin stitch border of each is also hand worked. The text and signatures are worked in satin and stem stitch with red thread. Text: "Presented to Kapara by Tranmere V.S.D. 114 July 1941"
