Modern Quilts For Manly Men & More By LUKE.




I blogged about edgy rock n' roll quilts by Boo Davis last August, now I'm happy to introduce you to another fabulous modern quilter and much to my pleasant surprise, the talented stitcher is a male.

Luke Haynes explores ways of using fabric as a medium for both functional quilts as well as wall hangings. His collections include Man Stuff, American Nostalgia, Self-portraits, Flightless Birds, Objects & Accessories as well as commissions and gifts.

Luke combines various techniques and looks to create his modern quilts and wall-hangings. Traditional quilting combined with the posterized imagery makes for beautiful textile art.

Screwdriver:
