    If it makes you feel better, I've never seen red quince jelly!

      You have to let the fruit oxidize to get it to turn pink, like when apples turn brown. If you added lemon juice you probably inhibited this reaction. If its cloudy then you might have forced it through the jelly bag rather than letting it naturally drain.
