This is an authentic, antique American quilt made circa the 1920s perhaps even earlier. This pattern throughout history has been called many names, such as, Rob Peter to Pay Paul, Marble Flower and Hour Glasses. This beauty has been both hand-sewn and hand-quilted by an absolute master. It is very rare to find earth toned quilts so we were thrilled to be able to offer this to you.
It is important to note that if you care about beautiful stitches, this piece is museum quality hand-quilted. It is very densely quilted with tight and meticulous stitches. It is also important to note the crisp points and elevated border, which can best be seen on the shawl collar and the sleeve cuffs.
This fabric is in excellent condition. However, there are some age marks that we could not lift when we washed it and a few mends. Two of them are very tiny and we have shown images of the two tiny stains at the end of the listing.
Please Note: The inside of the jacket, back of the quilt, has quite a bit of discoloration. The discoloration does not show through to the front of the quilt. We have enclosed a photo of this discoloration at the very end of the listing. If you want more details, please send us a direct message and we would be happy to send more videos of this.
- We consider the quilt to be very thin, lightweight, with little to no loft (puffiness). Because this piece was quilted by a master and has more stitches than the average quillt, it is not as drapey as many of our jackets. It holds its structure because of the dense quilting.
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.
