    I must be in a weird mood today. I keep finding these weird quilts. These guy makes quilts from used clothing. He calls them Bed Clothes. Here is an example of his work. Can you see the shirt?

    When I was younger, my bed looked like that, only with my clothes on it! LOL I love the name he gives them, bed clothes, it is so appropriate.

    Very interesting. Although, it doesn't appeal to me.

    Yes. I'm happy this happening, but not if it is some huge money making trend of the year.

    I love it. Although it really doesn't go with the decor, the rooms needs to be messier to really fit in. What a great imagination he has. I'd love to see other quilts that he has done.

    Thanks for the smile time.

    unusual concept, for sure...
    not my taste (i'd keep trying to pull the shirt off and fold it!) but definitely very interesting and creative!

    VERY unusual. Looks like a cluttered bed, floor, etc.

    I have to agree. Seems like a lot of work to end up with something that just looks like a mess. - Oh well, to each his own. I do have to give him credit for a clever name though.

    I don't know if "interesting" would be the right word, but I guess it's whatever floats your boat. LOL

    I love it! I think its very creative, very original and very "green".

    I love seeing handcrafted items that are "outside the box". TFS!

    I see the shirt and the glove and the boxers. Not my kind of quilt. At first I thought it was the materials getting ready to make a quilt. Took me a minute to get it. I must be slow tonight. I would never want anything like that. It looks messy and I am to organized to have anything that is that messy looking. Different strokes for different folks.

    I think it would go great in my bedroom. DH couldn't tell if it were a quilt on the bed or just my "mess". LOL

    Hmmmm, looks like my 16 year olds bed & floor. At least I can shut her door and not have to look at it! :lol:

    If I want to see that I will go into the kids rooms. It makes me want to clean and do the laundry. I bet it will be a big hit with the younger generation but for me it is yuck!!!
