This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1890s-1920s. It is the traditional Churn Dash quilt pattern with a Saw Tooth border. This piece is both hand quilted and hand sewn which is an absolute labor of love and a lost art. We consider this quilt to be extremely light weight and thin. We found this quilt in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. This is a Helen Jacket which means it is made to wear on the reverse for an additional styling option and this specific piece will look beautiful worn on the reverse. The inside of the jacket is a more subtle white and black graphic print which adds a perfect contrast to the blue and red/pink.

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.
