Very cool! Thanks Carol. I really like the line about paint, houses, and the
Mona Lisa.

I think this has to be the MOST unusual quilt I've ever seen- by a long,
long shot!  Watch the changing pics!

It certainly pushes the envelope of the definition of "quilt".  Wow.
At first, I thought I was looking at a 2-d appliqud thingie on a
white background... until the closeup of the ribcage popped in and I
realized what it really was.  On second thought, I wonder if it should
be "Wow" or "Ewwww".

Wow, I almost jumped the fence to declare, "That's not quilting.
Textile art, yes, but quilting, no."  8^P
However I'm really interested in learning where the quilting community
as a whole comes out on this.  Fer sher, with all the innovations in/
departures from traditional quilting we're going to see some new
vocabulary & definitions come out of all this, and it may be far from
over.  A couple decades down the road when somebody says, "I quilt,"
exactly what will that mean?

The definition of a quilt is two layers of fabric with some sort of
batting/filler (even flannel qualifies) in between with tacks, ties or
stitches to hold it all together.  There are no 'rules' for the size, shape,
use, decorations, manipulations, etc.  So, this does match the basic
definition even if it really, really pushes it to the limit.  Then again,
maybe it doesn't push the limit at all???

I like and admire all types and form of quilts/quilting.  Some appeal to me
more than others, and some even make me say 'what on earth was that quilter
thinking'???  But it's all good.  I love how quilting has expanded beyond
the 'utilitarian bed cover' idea.

And I wish I'd thought of making that skeleton!

got me thinking of the winner of the 2009 NZ Symposium, namely the
'Petone Hospital Blanket'. This 'appears' to be at the opposite end of
the quilting spectrum.

Doing a search - a larger version can be seen at

which belongs to

There has been much debate here in NZ about the winning entry.
