This is an american, Antique quilt made circa 1880's-1910. This quilt was found in rural Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. This piece is extraordinary because it is hand quilted and hand pieced. Please note there is a small age mark that we could not successfully lift when we washed this piece. The last two images in the listing show more details of this mark.

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.
