This is an American antique quilt, we believe it was made in circa 1950s. This piece is considered a Scrap Quilt as well as a Crazy Quilt. The maker used scraps from her fabric stash to complete this piece as opposed to going to a fabric store and buying new fabric off of a bolt. The fabrics contained are wools, crepes, and flannels. We love the geographic pop that the mixture of colors and textures provide in this piece. The quilt is hand knotted and secured with the charming red discs that you see throughout. We have added two antique embellishments that we repurposed from ornate honorary ribbons. We have added antique military peacoat buttons down the front as closures. The inside of the jacket (back of the quilt) is a collage of poly-blend fabrics and as a result has a little bit of stretch. In our opinion this quilt is thin with little batting or loft, heavier than most thin quilts and has a very good drape. Please direct message us for more details or to see 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 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.
