A machine for quilt making in the Victorian era was designed by Cite Machines.
The machine was part of the Victorian quilter’s collection and has been on display at the Victorian Quilt Museum in Victoria, Victoria since it was first exhibited in 1888.
Quilters of the era were well aware of the importance of quilters having a machine to fabricate their own quilts, and they would purchase machines from their local tradesmen to make the most of the machine’s abilities.
This machine was originally built for the Victorian trade, but it has since been used for both quiltering and quilted machine making.
In 1888, the machine was used to make a number of quilts that were given to the Queen’s Birthday celebration.
A year later, the Queen gave a number to the Victorians to commemorate the coronation of King George VI.

Cite Machines had been established in London in 1894 and opened a branch in Melbourne in 1897.
It also became the first machine to make fabrics for the Royal Victoria Household, and in 1910 it was the first to make clothing for the Queen.
There are a number variations on the machine, with different speeds and speeds of fabrics being created, and the machine is also used to fabricates quilts for other dignitaries.
These machines have now been on public display at Victorian Quilting Museum in Melbourne since it opened in 1888, and are on display in the Victoria Quilt Shop.
“The machine can be used for a variety of things including quiltery, quilts, cotton, fabricating quilts and fabrics for quilts to be used in coronavides and coronaviruses,” Victorian Quilts Manager Stephanie Smith said.
