This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1890s-1915. This piece is masterfully hand quilted and hand sewn which is an absolute labor of love and a lost art. This is a Pinwheel within a Nine Patch quilt pattern often referred to as a Flutter Wheel. It is so rare to find this much Indigo in such pristine condition. We have found a couple dime sized stains on the blue that we could not lift when we washed this piece, they are very hard to see and blend in to the pattern. Nonetheless, we try our best to describe all of the details. This piece is a thin and lightweight quilt that has not seen a lot of pre love. It is a little bit more structured and less drapey. PLEASE NOTE: WE SHORTENED THE SLEEVES ON THIS PIECE BY 1 1/2 INCHES. IF YOU HAVE LONGER ARMS THIS PIECE MAY NOT BE A MATCH 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.
