suit fabric quilt

the philadelphia museum of art had a Gee's Bend quilt exhibit last year and it was so inspiring to see. the women of Gee's Bend made gorgeous and beautiful quilts out of worn out clothing or any leftover fabric they could find. this quilt was inspired by them and their craft. it is made from leftover suit fabrics that i picked up at an antique store and the backing is a tablecloth. they were not concerned with straight lines and neither am i. i think there is character and life in crooked, wobbly lines. not to mention in nature straight lines do not exist and nature is about as perfect as it can get.

check it out in the brandeye shop.
