Amazing Urban Quilts by Amy Ahlstrom

The care and technique that goes into a handmade quilt is second to none, but the aesthetic often leans towards the floral and traditional...

Not so with the "urban quilts" of Amy Ahlstrom, which are hyper-modern and bold examples of fiber art. "Drawing upon her background as a graphic designer and comix illustrator, Amy digitally photographs the visual details of cities—street art, signs, and architectural details—and collages these images via computer into quilt designs. The resulting quilts, crafted of raw silk and cotton, are tactile visual postcards of urban environments. "

Seriously Bizarre Family Photos

I'm not much into passing along photos of people who aren't necessarily attractive, or who might have had less-than-timeless hair in the 80s, or where one or two of the subjects get caught their not-so-great expressions.
