This is an American Antique quilt completed June 1940. We believe this to be the maker's 65th quilt. We have preserved the provenance of the quilt on the inside of the jacket. We have included a photo of this at the end of the listing. It is a rare Floral Applique quilt pattern. It has been beautifully hand quilted and hand appliquéd. It is very rare to find any quilt, let alone an applique quilt with a black ground fabric. We love how the flowers pop off the backing and we feel this gives it a pop art vibe. If you like to dress on theme like we do here at Lady Lancaster, this would be a perfect holiday heavy lifter. In our opinion the quilt is buttery soft, very comfortable to wear, it feels like you are wearing a cloud. It has a moderate drape. The quilt does have loft (puffiness), which is why we give it a moderate drape. If you have further questions, please direct message us and we are happy to send you a video.

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.
