“And I say to you, I have also decided to stick with love, for I know that love is ultimately the only answer to humankind’s problems. And I’m going to talk about it everywhere I go…For I have seen too much hate. And I say to myself that hate is too great a burden to bear.” —Martin Luther King Jr.

Week of requests: quilts


“You always seem to be talking about cool quilts,” writes a reader named DC. “What are some favorites that aren’t too granny-ish?” It’s true, I do love a quilt, and I like them best when they aren’t, as DC says, grannyish, like this gorgeous textured one. It comes in a few colors, including a very good yellow, but I like this dark grey best.

This sunrise pattern is rather cheery.

This one is a little granny-ish, pattern-wise, but the bright colors make it modern.

This one dates from the 19th century (and costs a fortune) but doesn’t it look so contemporary?

A patchwork throw in a surprisingly versatile colorway.

This map of New York quilt is by a brand called Haptic Lab, and it is just stupendous.

A solid yellow quilt would play nicely with blacks and greys.

A slightly hippie girl quilt from L.L. Bean  that’s very nicely priced.

This is kind of a mashup of traditional and contemporary quilt styles, and I think it’s just great.


This moon quilt is nicely minimal.
