Renegade Patchwork Graffiti!

Remember the cute Log Cabin Lady? Well, I had another city quilt sighting. Lord, I love living in this city!

So I’m walking down the street and I see this white patch on the side of a building. I figure it’s a poster of some kind — happens all the time. But as I get closer, I realize it’s some kind of…fabric?? And there are words on it! And those words, aside from being really lovely and sweet, are embroidered on the fabric! What the Quilty??

Can you stand how adorable and warm-fuzzy this is? Not me. I can’t stand it. Here I am, not standing. In fact, I’m sitting. I am sitting and typing. And I am thanking the person who said, “Patchwork is for graffiti. I shall make some.” Because we all need to think outside the quilt sometimes.


And here’s a closeup. She’s so crafty!

  1. I would have loved to have seen this being applied! I envision a small, older lady with a hoody trying to be inconspicuous as she adheres her patchwork to the side of a building. I LOVE it!
