This quilt measures 80 x 86 inches and has wool wadding inside. This is a very heavy quilt. It is in very good condition with no signs of wear. It dates to the 1900's and probably comes from South Wales although there is no provenance.
Lots of spirals on this quilt - you can see that the centre medallion is a very large spiral surrounded by a star device with more spirals infilling the areas. Also seen are welsh hearts which are usually taken to mean a wedding quilt - I wonder if this is true in this case?
There is a border of triangles with spirals and then an outer border of diamond crosshatching.
Another view of the heart and outer borders.
Fans with a spiral infill in corners of the central field.....
