not all quilts are fabric!

i realize the technical definition of quilting is stitching together pieces of fabric, but i think the term can be stretched to appply to other materials. here are some of my favorite examples of utilizing the visual concept of quilting in other mediums.

(benjamin moore has a great line of metallic "wash" paints - they go on light so you can layer them. this photo shows the quilting effect that can be created if you've got time but not so much money. as a side note: i used bm's metallic bronze paint in my bedroom ~ i found it easy to work with and i'm very happy with the results)

(wall coverings by muerbluem - a photo i've saved for a while now. i love the idea of layering different wallpapers to create a quilt on your walls with paper)

(ann sacks quilt tiles - for a retro-modern look. i'm thinking these would be gorgeous accent tiles in a kitchen or pool house)
