This wool hexagons coverlet is dated 1882 in the central hexagon, with the name “Jones” also stitched in. It was probably made in Wales, and was donated to The Quilt Association.

The coverlet measures 1930 x 1625mm and is made of hexagons in cotton twills and plains, with a red flannel reverse folded to the front with the corners mitred and patchwork appliquéd over it. It has been hand quilted in a dark thread in straight lines in running stitch, and also machine stitched to the flannel around the edges. There are still papers in some of the hexagon pieces.

This striking coverlet was exhibited at The Quilt Association summer show in 2008.
