Emperor twin quilt

1,495.00

"You look like an emperor." That's what my partner said when he saw me wrapped up in the quilt sewing on the binding. And I think that's fitting because you do feel a certain groove around this quilt. The colors are so intense that they move around on you when you're not looking. In a dimly lit room, this quilt appears peaceable and tranquil, but turn on the lights and the quilt turns electric. You have to see it in person to know what I'm talking about.

I found these fabrics when I was shopping at my local fabric shop in SOHO. I was there to purchase backing fabric for another quilt when I got waylaid by this sizzling red-orange and blue tucked away in a corner together. And so another quilt was born. 

The Emperor quilt is made from "Zeal" and "Diving Board" (seriously), two of designer Robert Kaufman's 100% cotton hampton twills.

This quilt was hand-quilted, which took nearly 50 hours of sewing, to give it a texture and a quality of line that are impossible to achieve on a machine.

Approximately 60" x 95".
