This is an Vintage, American quilt made circa 1960s-1980s. It is the traditional Broken Star quilt pattern. The quilt is beautifully hand quilted and hand sewn. Which is a labor of love and a lost art. In our opinion, the quilt has not seen a lot of pre-love so would consider this piece to have a medium drape. It is thin, light weight and very soft with a medium loft (puffiness). There is what we would consider to be minor pilling throughout. The pilling looks like tiny white lint which is essentially exactly what it is because it is the batting clinging to the fabric. We have taken a video so you can have a visual of exactly what we are talking about and the video can be found at the end of the listing.  

  • This is a very lightweight quilt and also thin. It hugs the body beautifully. It also moves and drapes exceptionally well.

  • This jacket has two clear snaps at the tips of the collar that secure the lapel if desired.

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.
