Here is a large and heavy quilt, cheerful with red paisley fabrics. This quilt came from a seller in Devon - it was sold by an elderly man; apparently it was made by his mother and he was clearing out her effects.
The quilt is extremely heavy and it is obvious that it is a recovered quilt. I have not peeked inside - but you can feel ridges where the quilting is. It has been recovered with scraps of fabric. The size is 66 x 73".
I like to see the red fabrics - this one has charming fans -
and this one has pansy flowers....
.....while this fabric has the traditional paisleys. The quilting pattern is a rough grid.
I have previously open up another recovered quilt - alas, no hidden gem, only a rather ordinary welsh quilt in a beige colour..... obviously recovered as it was getting rather tatty. Recoveringa quilt was a way to extend the life of a quilt - important when people were poor and hadn't much money.
This quilt came from Devon, but with Wales not far away, I think that it is probably a recovered Welsh quilt, as you can feel the spiral quilting designs.
