This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1930s. This is the traditional Grandma's Garden quilt pattern. This piece was most likely made by a Rogue or someone who wanted to use up scraps from their sewing box. The palette and fabric combinations are so unusual and unlike anything we have seen. Even though this piece was completed in 1930s it uses fabrics dating as early as 1890s, including some very rare indigos and homespun ginghams. There is one rust colored fabric that shows vulnerability but aside from that this piece is in meticulous condition. It is beautifully hand stitched and hand sewn. As a result of this, the piece is not as drapey as some of our jackets because of the excessive amount of stitches and hand work. We are smitten with the contrasting lavender fabric on the inside of this jacket, which can best be seen on the cuff when it is rolled. This is a thin and light weight 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.
