This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1920s-1940s. It is a traditional Crazy quilt. This piece is loaded with rainbow colored hand stitching throughout. It is rare to find a crazy quilt in this great condition with these brown tones. It is important to note that some of the fabrics are fraying. We have included photos in the listings of these frays. The jacket is priced accordingly based upon the above. Not only is this piece hand embroidered but it is also masterfully and densely hand quilted along the plaid border. Perhaps the pinnacle of this masterpiece is the backing fabric which can best be appreciated when the jacket is cuffed or worn inside out. 

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