Marseille Quilt

Marseille quilt is a form of cloth with machine printed patterns resembling hand-stitched quilting.

Marseille quilts were popular in Britain from the mid-nineteenth century onwards. According to Averil Colby (1972:149), the fabric could be purchased by the yard for making into bedcovers at home.

This form of quilt should not be confused with Provincial Quilt or Marseille White Corded Quilting.
