Modern Quilts by Luke Haynes
Have you ever seen something that just left you in awe? Well, I was absolutely awe-struck when I discovered the work of Luke Haynes. His quilts are like nothing I have ever seen before. Using quilting as a way of artistic expression, Luke creates absolute works of art through simple scraps of fabric.
Some of my favorite pieces in Luke's collection include his very cool self-portrait above; this American Nostalgia quilt featuring President Obama;
this gorgeous quilted portrait of Frankie Manning;
and this lovely quilt he has termed The Boss.
It's amazing the imagery that Luke creates through fabric. I am so happy to have found his work, and am definitely thinking about getting a commissioned piece of my own. What could be a more wonderful family heirloom than an original Luke Haynes quilt?
