This quilt fits into the category of the iconic  Red Paisley although there is  little evidence of actual paisley  in the design rather the feel of it . The Victorians loved their paisley designs on turkey red but as the prints evolved they added both flowers and fruits . This  lovely print  features styalised flowers and trailing leafy fronds . The reverse is a plain Turkey red ( there are some darker marks on this side ) From the red side we can see traditional Welsh quilting  with borders of arches and leaves, but really this quilt is all about the fabric.   Jen has  a number  of these 'red paisley' quilts in her collection which have featured in many of our exhibitions.
