This is an extremely special piece because we were given a complete provenance of the quilt. It is very rare to be blessed with the dates, location, and names of the makers. We have preserved this and placed it on the inside of the right shawl collar. The details are as follows: the quilt top is a Four Patch made in the 1930's by Cara Ferguson from Otsego County, NY. The quilt top contains many historical feed sack fabrics as well as men's shirt scraps from its era. Many decades later, two friends named Patricia and Arlene worked together lovingly to complete the quilt using meticulous and gorgeous hand stitching. We hope whoever adopts this piece will cherish the provenance and create many more memories in this beloved patchwork. The quilt is in excellent condition. In our opinion it is very thin, very light weight, soft, and has a little loft (puffiness). Please note: from a distance this jacket reads pinkish, please scroll down to the close ups of the jacket and you will see that the fabric is a red and white gingham. 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 and we believe that makes them perfectly imperfect. This is what makes them a one-of-a-kind piece of art. All of our garments are pre-washed in a special restoration quilt wash. We recommend spot cleaning if necessary
