The last time Zac was in San Francisco, he said he'd like me to make him a quilt! So we were talking about possible designs, and then Dan and I were in LA to visit him a couple weeks ago, and we all went to LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) to see the exhibit "California Design, 1930-1965". It had all kinds of cool things from the time period, from the first Airstream trailer to clothes, furniture, and a full mock-up of an Eames design house. Several of the textiles made us think about possible quilt designs.
This one is an Eames textile that we liked. I could imagine making quilt squares with the Xs and dots and uneven borders. Zac suggested using large blocks and making the quilt just 20 big squares - we're working on that idea.
Wouldn't both of these make great quilts? And I don't even have a picture of Zac's other favorite item - the bathing suit with the giant lobster on it!
