This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1890-1920s. It is a variation of the Puss in the Corner quilt pattern. This piece has been both hand quilted and hand sewn. We have identified mens shirt scraps but more importantly it contains highly coveted indigos from its era. We believe that the person that completed this quilt is not the same person who started the quilt. In our opinion, the quilt was backed a couple decades after the quilt was handmade. Please note the contrasting celery and pale pink ticking fabric on the back of this quilt (inside of the jacket). This can best be seen when the sleeves are cuffed or the jacket is worn upside down. In our opinion this quilt is soft, very light weight, with medium loft (puffiness). This quilt appears to have polly batting which makes it puffier but not heavy at all. If you are a person that is looking for a comfy cuddly quilt jacket but not heavy, this is a great candidate for you. For its age this piece is in incredible condition. There is one age mark that we were unable to lift when we washed the quilt and we have included a photo at the end of the listing. If you would like more details or a video of this quilt please direct message us and we would be happy to assist you.

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.
