This is an American antique quilt made circa 1930s-1940s. It is a traditional Hop Scotch quilt pattern. This quilt has been both hand quilted and hand sewn, which is a labor of love and a dying art. If you are textile junky, or fabric appreciator this is a great quilt for you! It contains cheerful, novelty and juvenile fabrics from it’s era. In our opinion the quilt is thin, lightweight with a little loft (batting). We consider this piece to me moderate on the drape scale, it does hold it’s structure a little. There are no major flaws to note.
- 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.
