Is quilting metal?

I found this on Bravewords: Boo Davis a designer who makes metal-inspired quilts under the name Quiltsrÿche. Yes, seriously.

The Starfish have done a couple of quilting web sites so I know it’s a big industry. But I’m not quite sure what to think of this.

On one hand, I prefer my bed linen to be plain coloured and preferably dark. On the other, maybe a metal quilt with old t-shirts incorporated like this custom quilt could solve our mounting t-shirt problem. Hmmm.

So what’s the go: is quilting metal or not?

  1. LOLZ. That’s awesome. Beats the shit out of ripping them into strips and then crocheting them.

  2. Oh this is glorious. I had a similar idea but instead of quilts I wanted to make metal button down sweaters. Had a design for a Slayer one.

  3. If we can dream it, we can make it metal. Love it!

    As for t-shirts, I back them with stiff fabric, sew them together and make metal patchwork beanbags.
