Friday Design Finds: Not Your Grandma’s Patchwork

Nothing against your grandma or her patchwork.  Heck, I have a cherished and loved until it is falling apart patchwork quilt that belonged to my own grandmother.  But patchwork has gotten an update.  Bright colors, bold patterns and modern mixes are taking this old tradition from granny-style to boho chic.  Not sure I could ever talk Mr. Forager into a sofa, but maybe a bowl or two?  A little updated antiquarian boldness goes a long way.

I love the artsy boho feel of these pieces!  So many artwork pairings I can think of.. Jill Ricci, Maribel Angel, Christy Kinard, just to name a few!  Have a wonderful weekend, Artsies!  Have you seen the City Mouse | Country Mouse exhibition yet?  Well, what are you waiting for?  Check it out here.
