This is an antique, American quilt made circa 1900-1925. It is the Broken Star quilt pattern. This piece has been hand sewn and masterfully hand quilted. Please note: The stitches in this piece are to be appreciated more than most. The caliber of hand quilting and hand sewing in this quilt is museum quality, masterful work. Please enlarge photos or ask for videos via DM for more details on the stunning stitches on this quilt. We consider this piece to be thin, light weight, and soft. PLEASE NOTE: THERE ARE MULTIPLE AREAS ON THE QUILT WHERE THE RED DYE HAS BLED INTO THE IVORY. We have added photos to the end of the listing to show examples of the color bleed. This piece has what we consider to be a medium drape. So, it is not the most floppy quilt but it is also not the most structured. It moves and drapes somewhere in between the two spectrums.

  • 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.
