Tiny pink squares are set on the diagonal on a bright-ish white background. This popover, made from a summer-weight quilt, features a slightly rounded boat neck, and a slightly lower back hem. The back hem includes the quilt’s original saw-tooth border. Sleeve cuffs are lined with the same pink, and can be rolled back.

About the quilt pattern: Irish Chain is one of the oldest and most popular quilt patterns, dating from the early 1800s; it is NOT from Ireland. Single Irish Chain quilts are typically two colors, but variations (double Irish Chain, triple Irish chain) sometimes use more.

DESIGN & FIT
Cut and sewn in the style of a traditional chore coat or barn jacket, m.a.b.e.l's quilt coats are made from vintage "cutter" quilts from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Unless otherwise specified, all the original quilts are 100% cotton with cotton batting and handstitched.

m.a.b.e.l’s quilt coats are generously sized and can be worn slouchy or true to size. The Dolman sleeves allow for ample room and layering. Depending on your height, the jacket hits from mid to low hip. There is no front closure. The sleeve cuffs are wide enough to fold back.

About the quilts
m.a.b.e.l loves old quilts, and we're inspired by the workmanship and creativity of their original makers.

Some quilts have surface damage, missing patches, or holes. We’ve hand-mended and reinforced those spots, using cotton and linen threads and reusing scraps and other patches from the same quilt. Please see close-up photos for details of this mending.

We mend ‘sashiko-style,’ meaning the mending stitches are visible. Sometimes we use threads that match the area being mended. Other times we use a contrasting thread.

Care Instructions
We thoroughly wash each quilt (before cutting) and garment (after sewing), but keep in mind that most garments have some discoloration or slight staining. It’s part of the story.

Your piece is meant to be worn A LOT, and washed when needed. We have machine-washed each piece after sewing on the gentle cycle. You can do the same.
