It's spring time at Swirl Vintage! This quilt will be made into a ooak jacket. The style will be exactly the same as our other quilt jackets with a roomy hood, side seam pockets and shirt tail hem. This jacket with have a pink, white and yellow searsucker lining and the intricate embroidered bird on just below the collar on the inside lining.
Quilt History: "Our neighbor lady, an elderly grandma-type who never married, game me some quilts. She was from Missouri, and it was sewn during her quilting circle when she was young. She had a lot of quilts (saving them for her marriage trouseau but she never married!)"
Textile History: The sweet surprise on the inside lining is a vintage scalloped, crochet and embroidered bird! It's formal life was as a dresser scarf :)

**All of our quilted items have been hand washed and line dried however they are O L D quilts and you can expect minor stains (even I can't get all the stains out!) and minimal holes. We try and work around the holes when laying out the pattern pieces.
