This is an american, Antique quilt made circa 1930's. It features a postage stamp around the world quilt pattern. It is quintessential of the 1930's in that it captures a wide variety of pastel and floral fabrics from the era. This piece is hand quilted and hand sewn which is a labor of love and a dying art. It is extremely soft. We believe that the quilt top was made in a different decade than the back as we believe the backing fabric was added later. We found a note in the quilt that reads, "To my daughter Barbara Ann, love your mother, Margaret Barnickel Freibert." We have preserved this note and placed it near the tag in the jacket. 

  • 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

 

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.
