Urban Quilting on the Lower East Side
Now you can sleep with the Lower East Side. Literally. Frequent Boogie photo contributor C Merry has just completed the first of her “urban quilts.” Pretty cool idea, actually. She’s printed personal snaps used by sites in the blogosphere onto fabric and created a quilt. All handmade and self-stitched.
In her own words:
I wanted to create something tangible with my photos, and it’s really not like me to just frame something on a wall, I want to roll around in it. I had this idea and have finally brought it to life. I took my photos that you and others posted and combined with a few more of mine, created an Urban Quilt. Daylight photos are the top and my night shots are the back so it is reversible.
C Merry is selling her wares for $300 apiece. Each quilt takes about one day to complete. And of course, there’s the accompanying blog that chronicles the enterprise.
