This is an authentic, antique American quilt made circa the 1890s-1920. It is called the Streak of the Lightning quilt pattern. It is beautifully hand-quilted, which is a labor of love and a lost art. The quilt contains rare and valuable antique indigos from its era. We have reason to believe the quilt was backed at a later date from when the quilt was quilted because the backing fabric does not seem as old as the quilt top.
In our opinion, this quilt is very thin and lightweight, with a little loft (puffiness). It is very soft with 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.
