This is an American, antique quilt made circa the 1930s-1940s. This piece was found in rural Lancaster county. It is a Lancaster county antique quilt. It is an Eight Point Star quilt pattern and contains an abundance of cheerful fabrics from its era. The contrasting gingham on the inside adds depth and interest to the overall quilt. This can best be appreciated when the cuffs are rolled or when the jacket is worn inside out. The quilt is nicely hand-quilted and hand-sewn, which is a labor of love and a lost art.
- In our opinion, this quilt is thin, and lightweight, with little to no loft and batting. It is very soft with a great drape and is very comfortable to wear. If you like to wear your Ethels upside down, this is a great jacket for you.
- The shawl collar allows for several different style options. This jacket is meant to be worn right side up or upside down.
- 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
