The highlight of the collection is the 2011 Heritage listed Marianne Gibson Quilt; the world's finest example of a crazy patchwork quilt made by a local woman, Marianne between 1891-1896. It incorporates the story of the times and styles of the late 1800's. Amongst many finely embroidered motifs featured are local flora and fauna, Asian, European and North American influenced designs.

This quilt was given to the Historical Society in 1976 by Miss Alma Gard, a housekeeper for the Gibson's who was given the quilt by the daughters of Marianne. The quilt is kept in a special temperature controlled atmospheric room in the Wangaratta Art Gallery and displayed periodically.
