This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1890s-1920s. This is a traditional Pinwheel quilt pattern. This piece is beautifully hand quilted and hand sewn at 7-8 stitches per inch. This is a museum quality relic due to the condition of the fabrics from this era, specifically the brown fabric has stood the test of time and these browns are in excellent condition which is rarely seen from that era. In our opinion, this quilt is soft, light weight, with little to medium loft (puffiness) with an excellent drape. There are a few mends, zig zag stitches throughout, and there is a water mark on the inside of the jacket. Some of the whites show color transfer. Please see video at the end of the listing for visuals and do not hesitate to direct message us if you would like additional videos or information.

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.
