This is an American, antique quilt made circa the 1940s. It was beautifully hand-quilted and hand-sewn, meaning each hexagon was hand-cut by the maker and then sewn together one by one. The quilt contains at least three different historic feedsack fabrics. This piece was made in the traditional Grandma's Garden quilt pattern. While the pattern is quite common, the color and fabric combinations in this piece are extremely unorthodox which is why we gravitated towards it.
- The quilt is thin, lightweight, and soft. It has not seen a lot of pre-love and as a result, while it is soft, it does hold its structure.
- 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

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.
