The 'Brick Block' cropped Chore Coat features a medium weight 100% cotton quilt that is both hand-pieced and quilted. There are a vast number of calico, indigo, and shirting fabrics set in a brick block pattern This modified Chore Coat features a slightly less exaggerated drop shoulder, slimmer arms, and a less boxy silhouette (depending on how you would like it to fit), complete with handwarmer style pockets and antique brass snaps.
As this is a vintage quilt, it is possible it shows it age in the form of wear and/or discolorations. I gave this several baths by hand and dried in the sun, and it brightened up nicely and was totally worth the effort! There are some faded areas throughout but otherwise in very good vintage condition. These are not viewed as flaws, but rather giving it character and showing it's history. I have done my best to capture these areas in the photos, but is possible that not all are photographed. Please review all images as returns are not accepted - no exceptions.
