Fabulous Floral Finches Welsh Quilt (astb133)

This has to be one of the finest examples of a welsh quilt in existence; the MINT condition, size and superb fabrics are a rare combination of perfection and beauty!

This quilt dates to around the 1880s. It came from a house in Llandybie in Dyfed, a small village nestling at the South West corner of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The quilt is handstitched and judging by its quality and beauty, I imagine this was made by family members as a very special wedding present for a young couple. The quilt has remained unused all these years, carefully stored away and handed down through the generations of the same family.

This quilt has a different fabric on each side, so it is extremely versatile. One side has very pretty floral displays including roses, irises and daisies, in baskets. There are delightful floral garlands set atop the floral baskets - so very beautiful! The background is black and sets off the delightfully pretty colours perfectly.

The other side is as beautiful - perhaps more so! Breathtaking floray sprays in a gentle lilacy-mauve with silver grey foliage cover the impressive black background. Scattered throughout the floral sprays are the sweetest birds, which to me resemble exotic finches; they really are quite charming.

The quilting thread used for the beautiful handstitching is a pretty pink, which works perfectly with the colours in the decoration against the black background.

The quilt measures approximately 86" square. The condition is faultless; no fading, no wear, no marks.

This magnificent quilt will make a fine addition to a Welsh quilt collection. The fact that this has been carefully stored away for over 125 years is quite amazing and I have no doubt that the new custodian of this quilt will wish to display its beauty for all to see.
