"When you answer the phone with 'Hello, Funquilts,' you can't take yourself too seriously." Bill Kerr won us over at ICFF with his optimistic attitude towards his work, and the quilts, blankets, and fabrics he creates with his wife are equally engaging. Their one-of-a-kind pieces combine traditional techniques and designs with new, non-repetitive block patterns, and they also work with developmentally disabled adults to make the Many Hands blankies, embroidered with animals and perfect for a kids' room.
Show your hometown pride with a state-shaped cutting board, complete with a little star or heart engraved over the city of your choice. Made from rapidly renewable Plyboo, the extensive range is CNC-milled and made by a Brooklyn-based husband-and-wife creative duo. Check out their site for available locations!
Design studio urbancase has upcycled standard issue surplus blankets and turned them into something special. These heavy 100% wool throws are fixed up and stitched up in the firm's Seattle workshop, embroidered with an image in yellow and turquoise inspired by a subway car in Berlin. You're practically guaranteed a quick trip to cozytown when you're cuddled underneath.
The white embroidered links give notNeutral's 100% organic cotton quilt a bit of intrigue without overwhelming the throw with pattern. Plus, it's reversible, so when it's time to keep warm you can choose which color—sable brown or ozone blue—to show, and which to snuggle up to.
