Double sided bright blue wholecloth Welsh quilt .
Lovely traditional stitching , a central flower surrounded by a diamond lattice, spectacular fans and an outer border of traditional Welsh spirals .
From the glamourous 1920's -30's the fabric is Rayon , a silk alternative . Very 'modern' the current fashion of the time.
The name “rayon” was coined in the 1924 as a generic term for regenerated cellulose fiber. The “Father of Rayon,” Frenchman Count Hillaire de Chardonnet, discovered in the 1880s that nitrocellulose from rags or wood pulp could be turned into fiber, thread, and fabric. Rayon was the first manufactured fiber, but because it is derived from cellulose, is not considered to be a true synthetic but a “semi-synthetic.” “Artificial Silk” made by the Chardonnet process was popular for decorative fabrics in the early 20th century.
