This is a vintage, American quilt made circa 1970s -1980s. This is the traditional log cabin. This quilt was entirely hand pieced, meaning, each log is hand sewn to each other. Judging by the back of the quilt we believe the technique used to make this was a bit unorthodox. There is definitely some hand quilting present but it looks like the maker hand quilted around the courthouse steps instead of the more often seen quilting practice of consistently quilting throughout the whole entire piece. The borders are all hand quilted. This quilt is thin, soft and very lightweight. On the front panel under the pocket there is a little bit of green dye that bled onto about 4 inches of the white binding.
- 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.

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.
