This is a vintage American quilt. We are not certain of the date that it was made but we know it is vintage because of the fabric used in this beauty. The piece is beautifully hand-sewn and hand-quilted, which is a labor of love and a lost art. After a deep dive into Barbara Brackman's quilt encyclopedia, we were unable to find the pattern of this quilt. If any of you know the pattern please send us a direct message because we would love to know. The closest pattern we found was the Memory Block and/or the Baton Rouge block quilt pattern.
- We consider the quilt to be thin, soft, and lightweight. It has a little loft (puffiness). It has not seen a lot of pre-love so it holds its structure and is not super drapey.
- 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.
