This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1890s-1920s.This is a Windmill quilt pattern. This beauty has been hand sewn and hand quilted which is a labor of love and a lost art.  It is our belief that the quilt top was made during the eras listed above and then finished in a much later decade. We believe the backing fabric is not antique Indigo but rather reproduction antique Indigo. Regardless, we love the contrast of the blue fabric on the inside of the jacket which can best be appreciated when the jacket is cuffed or worn upside down. If you like to style your Ethel jackets worn upside down this is an excellent jacket for you. This quilt contains multiple rare chambrays and indigos from its era as well as at least three different homespun ginghams. In our opinion, this quilt is very light weight, very thin, very soft, with an excellent drape and a little bit of loft (puffiness). We have noted two small age marks that we were unable to lift when we washed this quilt. Please see photos for your convenience at the end of the listing. 

  • This is a very light weight, very thin quilt.
  • 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
  • If you have any questions about this jacket please direct message us on instagram and we will answer your question as quickly as possible. We do not accept returns.

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.
