This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1870s-1900. It is the traditional Log Cabin quilt pattern. This piece is extraordinary for so many different reasons primarily because it is in immaculate condition for its age. This quilt is hand quilted and hand sewn. We love the contrasting gray and brown fabric on the back of the quilt (inside of the jacket) you can best see this when the cuffs are rolled in the photos. This inside fabric is very high quality and soft flannel from the turn of the century. Typically, Log Cabins suffer greatly from age because of the thin fabric bars used to build around the center square. This is an absolute museum quality piece and the variety of fabrics used is sublime. Even though this quilt is extremely thin, because of all the fabric used it definitely has more weight than most thin quilts and the flannel on the inside makes this piece warmer and we recommend for regions with seasons. If you live in the tropics or warmer climates this piece may not be for you.

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.
