Cathedral Window Jacket (M)

Cathedral Window Jacket (M)


This jacket is made from a c. 1870-1880 "Cathedral Window" Quilt from Robbinston Maine. Hand stitched in red and white in a pattern closely resembling images of Cathedral windows. All 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 the corner.

It was made to fit a 3/4 size bed, which were commonly used in the late 1800s. Thus, this quilt was designed with a cranberry red color on two sides  to hang over the bed and a lighter red on top to sit atop the bed.


  • Five front horn buttons
  • Retro short box fit
  • Two front patch pockets
  • One front breast pocket
  • Hand stitched button holes


Each textile bares marks of the past. All signs of wear, character, stains and mending are reminders of its' history, and original to every carefully curated and preserved textile. Hand made in California.
