This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1890s-1920s. It is hand quilted and hand pieced with very tiny triangles. This piece was technically difficult to make because of the tiny pieces used in the quilt blocks. We searched Barbara Brackmans quilt Encyclopedia thoroughly and were unable to find the quilt pattern. If you know the name please message us because we would love to know. We consider this piece to be medium weight, medium thickness, with a nice drape. This piece has a lot of loft. If you live in a warmer climate this may not be a good match for you. Please note there is some minor color bleeding on some of the squares. This piece contains some homespun gingham as well as some mens shirt scraps.
- This is a very light weight, very thin quilt.
- The shawl collar allows for several different style options. This jacket is meant to be worn right side up or upside down.
- This jacket has two clear snaps that disappear into the fabric at the bottom of the shawl collar to help the lapel drape nicely.
- The Aunt Ethel has slouchy shoulders and a generous fit, keeping in line with its bohemian roots.
- One Size Fits Most

Please note that all of our jackets are made from antique quilts and the fabric reflects this. Our fabrics are sometimes older than 100 years and we believe that makes them perfectly imperfect. This is what makes them a one-of-a-kind piece of art. All of our garments are pre-washed in a special restoration quilt wash. We recommend spot cleaning if necessary.
