The South Eastern Times : April 8th 2014
12 - The South Eastern Times, Tuesday, April 8, 2014 www.thesoutheasterntimes.com.au NEWS 12 AMONG the 250 quilts displayed around Millicent during the Geltwood Festival, three proudly displayed pieces were signed off with the name "Hyland". The hand of Mrs Hyland did not do the intricate detailing featured on the quilts - they were made by three men. The hardened exterior of the Hyland men belies the nimble fingers of brothers Jim, Robert and Peter. "About 15 years ago, my wife started making quilts and she'd send me out to get her material," Jim said. "We were in Queensland and I was recovering from cancer and I thought I'd get into it." While travelling Australia, Jim engrossed the attention of many due to his extraordinary talent. "It would be pretty funny when we'd pull up at a caravan park and I'd pull out the sewing machine," he said. "I guess it would be a pretty strange sight to see a guy like me making a quilt." After stitching his first masterpiece, the couple returned to the South East in 2005, teaching the tricks of the trade to Jim's brother, Robert. Soon after, brother Peter picked up the needle and thread and joined the fraternal bond of material pursuits. "Quilting is surprisingly pretty relaxing and it's a good feeling to see the quilt when it's finally finished," Jim said. "Sometimes how other people react to the quilts is the best part about the whole thing."
