Quiltsurround

Craftzine posted about this installation in Memphis, Tennesseee. I clicked on the link, which led me to another link.  And there went the morning.

Anyway,  I’m not sorry.  Go check it out when you have a few moments.  Here’s the link to  Jenean Morrison’s pictures, the Urban Art Commission pictures, and here is the link to a Memphis Flyer article about it.

These are quilts made out of over 700 old signs.  You know, the kind that have speed limit, caution, no parking, etc that are made of aluminum?

Greely Myatt and some of his University of Memphis students cut those into pieces and made 32 ‘quilts’.   If you want to be literal, they’re panels since they’re not really quilted.  They hide a chain link fence and some ugly heating and cooling system stuff at City Hall.
