Featured Quilt-of-the-Week!

The Steel Quilt Co. ~ Nathan (& Will) Winkler ~ Fort Payne, AL

I know this is more than just one quilt, but Nathan’s work is so unique and amazing that I just had to share several!  All of his pieces are made with recycled metal roofing from old barns.  They are hand-cut patterns and framed with reclaimed barn wood.  The ultimate in up-cycled art!

  1. Jacobs Ladder- 2’x2′. A fan favorite! This is from the Underground Railroad series.
  2. 4 Seasons- A commissioned piece.  4′ x 4’…This piece was created for a couple who wanted the 4 seasons represented on one piece, free-styled as much as possible with their initials in the middle (the yellow block).
  3. Drunkards Path- 2’x2′.  This is one of Nathan’s favorite patterns to do.  It is also from the Underground Railroad series.
  4. Tennessee Star- 2’x2′. Nathan gets a lot of requests for this block.  Generally the pattern does not have the star in the middle, nor the squares in the corners but this one was a hybrid that he came up with, and people love it.
  5. Double Wedding Bands- 2’x2′. This is probably Nathan’s biggest seller, but also the most time consuming.

The Steel Quilt Co. is also on Facebook if you are interested in seeing more of them!
