Gasp! “Built Quilts” … with a couple of appearances by Julie Andrews thrown in for good measure! This is the fabulous work of American artist {and set designer} Troy Murrah. Not only is the work wonderful, so is the inspiration behind it:

“Initially intended as a way to feel close to his mother (quilter and art educator Judy Murrah) after her passing, BUILT QUILT ended up being a great way to use up the salvaged material and bring new life to the old … Combining inherited family skills of quilting and carpentry, artist Troy Murrah uses thousands of wood fragments, cut from leftover remnants, to construct elaborate wall hangings that replicate traditional quilt patterns. Take a closer look, and find engravings of wallpaper designs—designed by the artist using imagery influenced by his past.”

I love every single little thing about this. Happy Monday.
