Best Bets

An Ian Hundley quilt. Plus, April Fools’ Day, French style, a groovy shoe, and more...


The Best Bet
Knitting broke the hipness barrier long ago, but quilting hasn’t had quite the same enthusiastic revival. It’s not exactly portable, and the time commitment is far greater. Ian Hundley’s creations could be the necessary spark. The 34-year-old Canadian has been sewing for decades but made his first quilt just seven years ago. His patterns are taken from a book of topographical maps of Western Europe that he “borrowed” from his ninth-grade classroom and never returned. The fabrics come from Hundley’s friends, thrift shops, even his own clothes, and each quilt takes a month to make ($2,000 to $8,000 at An Earnest Cut & Sew, 821 Washington St., nr. Gansevoort St.; 212-242-3414; ianhundleystudio.com).
