Quilts and quilting seem to be very fashionable at the moment.
I've always loved old quilts, especially the early American red and white ones. One wonders if Frank Stella's grandmother didn't make, or own, a few.
These are now becoming extremely expensive to buy (I own ONE). So, here's an idea; why doesn't some clever business-minded entrepreneur buy the 'rights', and PRINT them as bed covers. The quilt-stitching could be done by machine, and the finished product would sell at a tiny fraction of the cost of an original.
Here in France they already do something similar with their antique looking boutis.
'SACRILEGE', I hear all you quilters shout! No, just hoping to make beautiful things available to a wider audience, at a price we can all afford.
