Original and Replica Frederica Josephson coverlets are currently on display


Currently both the original Frederica Josephson coverlet (as shown in Annette Gero's book) and the replica made in 2011/2012 by a group of dedicated sewers (presented to the National Trust at the 2012 Sydney Quilt Show) are on display to the public at Old Government House in Parramatta.

In the same room (the second last on the house tour), the Lady Mary Fitzroy incomplete hexie top and fabrics are also arranged on the bed. They will all be on display as part of the house tour until the 3rd of February 2013.
