Luke Haynes made this quilt, Hammer, as the first piece in his Man Stuff series. It is a large quilt, 72" x 84."  Here is Luke's statement:

I wanted to call to mind "the Floor Scrapers" Gustave Caillebotte, with the perspective and the diagonal visual movement towards the lower right. This series is a testament to my place in the art world as a male making art with a process that has been dominated by women primarily as utility. I wanted to show a "Man" item in a way that illustrates the use of fabric and light and stitching as notations of an art piece.
