The project to unearth the quilts of Fogo Island revealed a trove of knowledge and design that was not thought to be worth more than the functional warmth the quilts provided.

A Fogo Island fundamental is economy of materials in using and reusing all resources. The strip quilt is an inspiring example of this concept. Piecing together scarps with an anarchy of colour and pattern the realized quilt comes together in a cohesive whole. The design stays true to the concept of Outport Aesthetics; the ability to express the maker’s individuality and flourish while ignoring conventional rules.

Seemingly simple, the strip quilt is a testament to the creativity of the quilter. Each strip quilt is a complex balance of colour, pattern, and texture to ensure a cohesive composition.

Made on Fogo and Change Islands by quilters with decades of passion and experience. The colours and patterns of the cotton material will vary as materials can be vintage or new remnants.

The quilt can be made with a herringbone stitch in several colours that in a time-intensive intricate stitching process. All quilts come with a tag embroidered with the name of the maker who design and crafted it.

A bespoke option is available for those who want to be a part of the design process in selecting textiles and stitching. Upon receipt of your package, simply select your quilt's colour family, colour tone, weight, and a custom embroidered label. After receiving your selections, a member of our team will be in touch with you to finalize your fabric choices and discuss any further customization options to create your own one-of-a-kind heirloom quilt.
