This is an American, antique quilt made circa the 1930s-1940s. This piece has been beautifully hand-quilted, which is a labor of love and a lost art. Over the course of history, this quilt pattern has been called many different names. According to Barbara Brackman's Quilt Encyclopedia, here are some of our favorites: Snowball, Federal Chain, Dutch Mill, and Pullman Puzzle.
Please note: there is a very small stain that we were unable to lift during our washing process on the back of the jacket. For your convenience, we have added a photo at the very end of the listing so you could examine it for yourself.
- In our opinion, this quilt is very thin, very lightweight, with little to no batting. The cotton used is very luxe and soft. The quilt is in excellent ocnditionand has a perfect drape. It is wonderful to wear.
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.
