When you think of a quilt, you may think of something a little old-fashioned and antiquey. But lately a handful of modern makers have been re-inventing the quilt for a new generation.

The two quilts above are from a studio called Louise Grey, whose uber-minimal works I first admired at last year's NY Now show. Their quilts, which start at $395, come in six different patterns for draping over the bed or hanging on the wall, and you can buy them on their website or at West Elm.

If these quilts intrigue you and you want to start making your own, check out The Modern Quilt Guild, a great resource for anyone interested in quilting with a modern edge. They have local meetups all over the country, and host an annual event called Quiltcon, where you can see some pretty impressive work on display (like the 'Welcome to Colorful Colorado' quilt pictured above).
