This is a paisley wholecloth quilt from the Brecon area of Mid Wales. It was given to Project Linus*, and then passed to The Quilt Association in return for a donation.
The quilt is made of cotton sateen, featuring a green paisley on one side and plain green on the other. The wadding is a dark woollen blanket. It has been hand quilted in green cotton thread, and features typical Welsh quilting symbols, including a central medallion with spirals, hearts, leaves. The edges are butted together.
