A few weeks ago my husband and I were able to travel to California to mix a little business with pleasure. While we were there we were able to go to the LA Quilt Show. The main attraction for me wasn't the show, but the works of fiber artist extraordinaire Luke Haynes. I had read a little about him online, seen some of his work on social media, and had become quite interested in his seeing his art in person, never really thinking it would become a reality. When we got to LA I realized the timing was perfect for us to attend the show.
To say I was excited would be mildly understated!
Here are the 4 pieces that were there. All are quite cool in pictures, but I was most interested in checking them out up close.
I am by no means an expert or aficionado of art quilts, just a curious onlooker, but it was so cool to look at the pieces up close. I was completely fascinating to see how they were created. Luke did a class the night before that I was unable to attend but I can imagine it would have been worth it for those who actually got to be there!
This flag was created entirely of log cabins.
I especially liked how the "stars" were created.
It's a beautiful piece.
And the layering...
It gives each piece such depth and detail.
Up close you can see the detail in the quilting, as well.
I am so happy that I was able to see Luke's work in real life.
If you ever get a chance as well, Do it!
Definitely worth your time.
Thumbs up to the awesomeness, Luke!
