This jacket is made from a c. 1870-1880 Red and White Cathedral Window Quilt from Robbinston Maine. It is hand stitched in red and white cotton in a pattern intended to closely resemble images of Cathedral windows. All painstakingly hand stitched except for the red binding which was machine stitched by a treadle machine. Signed by its maker with a hand stitched "L" in one corner. It was made to fit a 3/4 size bed, which were commonly used in the late 1800s. So this quilt contains a more cranberry red color on each opposing side which was designed to hang over each side and the top lighter red would fit perfectly on the top.
- Five front natural corozo buttons
- Three front pockets
- One breast pocket with button flap
