Distraction: Vintage Japanese Quilts

Just spent way too long admiring these vintage Japanese quilts that look like incredible abstract paintings.  Even though I have a supply of tattered denim from my shaved-head, rebel-with-a-cause, angry-activist days, I don't think my assemblage of remnants would come close to these beauties.  Still, a Wandering Eye can dream.  Now, where's that sewing kit?

Undeniably beautiful and how wonderful they would look as hangings - if they are strong enough, that is. Break out your sewing kit, indeed!

I want to sleep and thus to dream under a large pile of these! Where are my old jeans?

I do love these, something truly alive isn't there? something personally made would do the same.

JnyG I know you could whip up something amazing with a few pairs of jeans...old or new!

Little Augury you are quite right...there is definitely a life lived in each of these pieces.
