This is an American, antique quilt made circa the 1930s-1940s. This piece was made in a variation on the Lover's Knot quilt pattern. This beauty is hand-quilted, which is a labor of love and a lost art. The quilt is unlike any piece we have ever worked with. It begs the question of who was the maker and we wish we would have had the opportunity to know her. The fabrics used and the way in which the fabrics are used in this piece are absolutely mind-blowing and never before seen and will never be seen again. The fabric patterns are full of whimsy and charm and perhaps our favorite pattern is the juvenile fabric with rabbits riding wagons. According to Lady Lancaster standards, this jacket is a 10/10.
In our opinion, this quilt is very soft, very thin, and very lightweight, with a little bit of loft (batting) and a great drape.
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.
