Jimmy McBride Quilts
I just came across quilts by Jimmy McBride. These quilts are different from anything I have seen. Jimmy uses elements of Sci Fi and Astronomy among other things and puts together chaotically beautiful pieces. On his blog he points out that he uses thrifted shirts for his fabric. He also includes a picture of the racks of his local thrift store...it looks far beyond any thrift store I have been to!! I'm jealous. I really wish I could get one of these quilts. Luckily, my Mom is making me a wonderful quilt I found the pattern for on Quiltology's wesite, picture included.
