This is an American, antique quilt made circa the 1930s. It is the traditional Lone Star quilt pattern in a very unorthodox and rare palette. We are obsessed with this color orange and any time we can find something this beautiful in orange we want to scarf it up. The quilt is hand-quilted and hand-sewn. It is in excellent condition. There is a very subtle sunbleaching discoloration on the orange part of the quilt but it is so subtle that our images were not able to capture it. If you want a video of the sunbleaching, please let us know. The sunbleahing does not affect the integrity of the fabric in any way. In our opinion, it adds charm and interest and a window into this quilt's backstory. This piece is a 10/10 in our book.
Please Note: the contrasting fabric on the backing of the quilt, inside of the jacket, is a thin, very soft flannel ticking.
We have used unique oval and brass buttons as closures. Please see photos for more details.
- In our opinion, the quilt is extremely lightweight, thin, butter-soft, with an excellent drape.
- This jacket best fits a size 0-8 depending on styling preferences and bust size. We consider this to be a size small. Please reference measurements before purchasing for a specific fit.
- This jacket features two generous pockets.
- This piece is lightweight but of medium thickness. It has loft to it but it is not heavy at all.
49” top of the back of neck to the bottom of the hem

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 old and are perfectly worn. We believe this is what makes them special and is part of their charm. All of our garments are pre-washed in a special restoration quilt wash. We recommend only spot cleaning if necessary.
