This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1940s-1950s. It is the traditional simple quilt block or triangle combination quilt pattern. However, the technique in making this piece is different than a typical quilt block because the maker made the individual triangles and then hand sewed them together one by one. This is not the kind of quilt that has a backing. This piece of work took an insane amount of time to create and the hand stitches are apparent throughout. Because this is hand sewn some of the stitches may be looser than others and we have priced this accordingly. It is a lightweight, soft, perfectly draped quilt.

 

  • 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.
