This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1940s-1950s. This is the traditional Broken Star quilt pattern. This piece is hand quilted and hand sewn. Although there is a lot of hand work in this quilt, it is not the most exceptional hand craftsmanship. The stitches are on the rookie side, the points are not crisp, or tight. If you are a stitch nerd this may not be a good piece for you. However, these Rainbow Broken Stars are one of the most popular asked for quilt jackets and typically they sell for much more than this one will be listed for. We are pricing this based upon the more elementary construction. Please note, that despite the lack of masterful stitches, this piece is in excellent condition. It was barely if ever used and will make an excellent addition to your wardrobe. In our opinion, this quilt is thin, very soft, light weight, with a great drape. 

  • This jacket features side slits for generous movement and a beautiful drape.
  • This jacket has two clear snaps at the tips of the collar that secure the lapel if desired.
  • This jacket has two pockets.
  • Fold the architectural collar down to create a lapel if desired.
  • The Helen Jacket has a generous fit and is not meant to have a tailored look.
  • 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 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.
