This is an experimental quilt, not merely mental. I layered a bunch of synthetic fabrics, quilted the sandwich with lots of swirls and squares.
 Then I distressed it with a heat gun, melting the layers unevenly to expose the underneath colors and textures.
Then I used a woodburning tool to burn away parts of it. The edges have curled up, like a potato chip. I think I like it.
This is the way it looks now. I might  do more burning.
 This is how it looked after quilting, and before any heat was applied.
 This is after the heat gun burned away some of the layers.
