Gay Marriage Equality Quilt Design

Before the gay marriage equality logo went viral on social media last month, it was already a familiar motif to me, albeit in a different context. Back in 2007-2008, when I was developing designs for my Power Stripping workshop, I made this quilt that I called “Power Points” because the motif recalled an electricity outlet or wall plug:
Power Points DetailMy quilt is made from a gay rainbow of colours but the pattern could be easily adapted to the reds and pinks of the marriage equality logo.  Take a look at Kristin la Flamme’s Equality Wedding Quilt (made from her own pattern) to get an idea of how it might look.

  1. Yup, your pattern would make a great Marriage Equality quilt — in one red and one pink, or in myriad shades. 🙂
