Beautiful work, isn't it. But you certainly would not want to sleep under it. It might weigh anywhere from 80 to 130 pounds!! That's because it is not an actual quilt, it is a sculpture of a quilt completely carved out of wood. The detail is incredible. It is the work of artist Fraser Smith. You can see this piece and many more at his website. I encourage you to go there and take a look around. Also, check out the Frequently Asked Questions page where you can learn all about how he does it. Simply amazing. This particular piece is on permanent display at the Museum of the American Quilter's Society (AQS).
