There is a smallish exhibition at the Gallery of Modern Art called "Threads, Contemporary Textiles and the Social Fabric." I live in the Asia Pacific region and these works are just a smattering from our neighbours.
These quilts were hung high in the gallery, rather like flags. Against the almost austere walls of the room they also looked like bright textile banners. Most are made from cheap fabrics, all that was available to the makers. They have a distictive style that draws on the weaving and platting paterns that were used traditionally in the Pacific Islands.

I couldn't find the name of this quilt but thought it beautiful. This image also demonstrate the use of quilts as flags.
