Comma Workshop.

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

These one-of-a-kind quilts by Colorado's Comma Workshop feature original poems and stories stitched freehand onto white cotton. The brainchild of designer and writer Kerry Larkin, the company strives to offer a new take on "the time-honored traditions of quilting and storytelling."


Kerry sounds worthy of a few good words herself - according to the Comma Workshop site, she's "sheared sheep, opened a yoga studio in rural Alabama, and dragged an 80-foot yellow arrow across the country." She also hopes to someday name a pet dog Walt Whitman. Enough said.

For more information - and to read the writings featured on these quilts - visit the Comma Workshop website, here.

So pretty. I would totally hang it against a brightly colored wall versus using it on the bed.
