This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1890-1920. This piece was made in the traditional Squirrel in a Cage, Johnny Round the Corner, or Single Wedding Ring quilt pattern. According to Barbara Brackman's Quilt Encyclopedia, the quilt has been referred to as all of the above throughout history. This piece has been lovingly quilted by hand. The fabrics are a stunning display of textiles from its era, and we especially love the contrasting ticking fabric on the back of the quilt, and inside of the jacket. This can best be seen when the cuffs are rolled or the jacket is worn upside down. If you love our Aunt Ethel jacket styled upside down, this is a great candidate for you. Finding this color green from this era in this great condition is next to impossible and we feel so fortunate to have been able to work with this piece.
In our opinion, this quilt is soft, thin, and lightweight, with a great drape, and a little loft (puffiness).
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.
