Quilts by Don't Quilt Your Day Job

Another Labor Day has come and gone, and with it the Bumbershoot Festival. This year featured a bevy of independent crafters at the Indie Market, sponsored by ReadyMade. One Indie Market vendor of note was Don't Quilt Your Day Job. A well-selected quilt can add color, warmth and a touch of grandma-style comfort to a room; but go too far and — well, maybe we don't want our home to be that much like grandma's.

No chance of that with these pop culture-inspired quilts, with likenesses of mix tapes, street signs, headphones and the like on them in un-flowery colors. Our favorites are this fierce-looking owl (we think his name is Owen — go to the website, you'll see) and the boom box, a classic. Don't Quilt Your Day Job also quilts recycled plastic bags into B.O.B.s: bags made out of bags. Many items can be ordered through the website or their Etsy store; additional patterns can be found on their blog. Ask about customization. -danielle
