Quilt, by Victor

Charlie

C is for Charlie. According to the International Code of Signals, the Charlie flag means “AFFIRMATIVE” making it one of the more positive signals used.

“Affirmative” is how we felt about a boat ride to Cape Lookout, on The Cherokee, with Carlton + crew, to shoot the Letter C. Our sweet ride, The Cherokee, is a fully restored 1948 Huckins 65 foot offshore boat. Many thanks to Carlton Midget for taking us out! (Carlton’s family maritime history goes waaaaaay back.) On deck, prepping for pics of Charlie. #RDWfieldtesting

I created this quilt from a collection of denim - our OG Cone Mills White Oak Selvage, a perfectly-hued pair of red jean prototype from a former season, and an extinct natural 2x2 Selvage from Cone Mills that I’ve been saving for years. I also incorporated the seams that form when the mill connects two long pieces of denim before winding them on to the roll. You can see this as the white stripes cutting through the larger blue stripes. There’s something beautiful about this stitch, and we relish opportunities to use it since it doesn’t make sense in our production garments. The quilt is approximately 60in x 80in. It will cover the top of a queen sized bed with no overhang. 

More on the Cherokee: Cherokee is a 65-foot, completely rebuilt and redesigned 1948 Huckins Fairform Flyer, meticulously restored to capture the vintage grandeur of Herreshoff style interiors.Cherokee is an extreme shallow-water vessel—the only yacht of its size, speed and luxury capable of navigating the notoriously difficult waters of the Bogue, Core and Pamlico Sounds.
