PThis is an American, antique quilt made circa the 1940s. It is the traditional Philadelphia Pavement quilt pattern. The quilt is extraordinary for its hand-quilting, hand-sewing, and use of tiny pieces. Each piece measures 1"x1." The smaller the pieces in a quilt, the more technically difficult it is to make. We love to see the mix of solids and prints in this graphic display.
Please note: the black and white calico fabric on the backing of the quilt, inside of the jacket. If you love to wear your Ethel jackets upside down, this is a great jacket for you. The reverse fabric can be seen best when the cuffs are rolled or the jacket is worn upside down.
One other technical item to note that makes this quilt special is the use of the tri-color, lavender, mint, and lemon-colored border. This is very rare and packs a power punch when wearing this jacket.
In our opinion, the quilt is thin, lightweight, with a little loft (puffiness) and very soft.
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.
