This is an Antique American quilt. Made circa 1920's to 1940's. It is a traditional Seven Sister's Quilt pattern. This quilt pattern pre-dates the civil war (1861-1865). Each of the stars represents the first seven southern states to secede from the United states before the inauguration of Abraham Lincoln as president. This quilt pattern is hard to find and holds significant historical meaning. It is also hand quilted and hand sewn. If you are traveling for 4th of July or like to dress on theme this is the absolute perfect addition to your art collection. We are thrilled to have included a 13 colony hand embroidered Ruby McKim quilt block as the tag for this masterpiece. In our opinion the quilt is thin, light weight, with loft (puffiness). It is very soft and a dream to wear. We consider this a Lady Lancaster 10/10. If you have further questions please direct message us and we are happy to send you a video.

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.
