Union County throw quilt

695.00

I started the Union County throw quilt with no particular design in mind; I just picked two scraps of fabric that I liked together, and kept on sewing until I had a quilt-sized square. (I can point out the first two pieces to get sown together if you'd like.) What I like most about this quilt is how it keeps your eye moving and exploring every inch of the quiltwork. As I was designing this particular quilt, my intention was to create separate spaces within the whole, distinct from one another, but complementing one another as a unified piece. Even the colors subtly reference to that idea of E pluribus unum ("Out of many, one"). 

The Union County throw quilt is made from Shot cotton, a fabric appreciated for its intense color, soft handfeel, and natural texture. Unlike most cotton fabrics which are dyed after weaving, Shot cotton is unique in that it's woven with two different thread colors, creating a deep and complex depth of color unmatched in other fabrics.

Approximately 47" x 56".
