We are well into the Quilt Expo here in Paducah, and while the showing at this year has yielded some awesome “traditional” quilts..I think these raise the bar a bit.
QUILT LIFE! Tupac ain’t dead, he’s on this quilt and looking fly as ever. This quilt will keep you warm, and improve your street cred. Be warned though, it’s not bullet-proof. Check out the artists full inspiration on the Spencer Museum of Art website!
2. SUPER MARIO QUILT
Who doesn’t love Super Mario Brothers? This covering would be ideal for any video game session. Plus if anyone wants to criticize your nerdiness and tell you to “get a life”, you can just point to the 1-up mushroom and get back to gaming. You can find many more geeky quilt designs by visiting Geekcrafts.com.
3. DNA Quilt
Speaking of nerdy quilts, check out this double helix design courtesy of Anotherthink.com. I don’t understand the Science, but supposedly these designs are relevant to the actual composition of an actual composition of a strand of DNA! Pretty…(yawn)…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
4. COFFIN QUILT
Looking for that quilt to die for? Something to really take to your grave perhaps?!?!?! Okay enough of the death puns, this coffin quilt freaks me out. I’m sure there is a market for this type of thing, but the last thing I wanted to be reminded of before I drift off to bed is the eternal sleep. For those who are interested you can pick up this quilt at Sewscary.com.
5. CRAZY GODDESS QUILT LADY THAT STARES INTO YOUR SOUL
It’s the quilt that stares back…intently…and creeps you out a bit. Maybe it’s the blue hair, or the face…oh who am I kidding it’s the eyes! I can’t be sleeping on something that peeks back at me! I’d have to flip it over…but then that’s even creepier!
