This antique quilt is known as the 1920s Carolina lily quilt. The color is worn off-white, Carolina red, and a subtle beige on the stems of the lilies.
All four corners were utilized from this quilt. Two of the borders meet on the opening of this jacket and the other two in the sleeves, creating a dramatic angled point. This is a very thin quilt, so, ideally, this is a lightweight jacket.
This piece was crafted by hand not once but twice and does have minor imperfections due to the age of the fabric. There is slight fraying in the original binding, but we believe that is what adds to the character and part of what makes this jacket so unique.
Please note that these are one size fits most, and every square inch of these quilts is utilized, so if you are naturally petite, the jacket can be deconstructed and shortened to your height.
