    A different Tshirt quilt

    I was surfing and found this quilt by Ben Venom. What an amazing talent this man has. Hope it inspires some one to step outside of the usual t-shirt quilt.... http://myloveforyou.typepad.com/my_l...ben-venom.html

    If you read through the article theres a link to his site and many more quilts.

    I don't like T-shirt quilts, I don't like skull's, I don't like snakes, and I don't like Metal music ... but the result is stunning!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Thank you for sharing - that quilt is really cool! I better not show it to my husband, he'll want me to make him one. I wonder why he made it so large....

    Here's a link to MY favorite alternatively-styled t-shirt quilt. I love the quilt, however the story behind it is very sad.

    I really like what he does! This doesn't mean I like heavy metal, skulls, snakes, and all the other stuff. I do like the departure from block t-shirts, taking pieces and creating a design. Then again, I am a fan of landscape and freestyle quilts and free motion quilting. Thanks for sharing this link. At first I cringed, then took a closer look at his design skills. Quilting is for everyone!
