Inspiration Gallery: Quilts

By Twistie


I love quilts. In fact, one of my most prized possessions is the lovely quilt a good friend made for me and Mr. Twistie as a wedding gift. It tells all about us, from our meeting at Renaissance Faire to Mr. Twistie’s songwriting to my lacemaking, and more. A couple years ago, she gave us a matching pillow with the Vulcan salute on it. Too cool for school.

The quilt pictured above looks more like the quilt my great-grandmother made. Classic, familiar, cosy. I love classic quilts.

But I also love the exciting things people are doing with the classic craft now to challenge and amuse us.

For instance, take a look at this fabulous quilt done by artist Amy Ahlstrom:

Quilting can include other media as well. For instance, this one entitled Real Men Don’t Quilt involves a Magic Marker drawing in the middle of the quilt:

Whether you go for traditional or modern, quilting is a fabulous craft with nearly infinite possibilities. And then, when you finish your piece, it will keep you warm on cold, winter nights.

Now that’s a great advantage.
