Self-taught quilt artist LUKE Haynes describes himself as an "architect who makes quilts"—the perfect blend of his background in architecture and fine arts. LUKE, who hits the thrift shops to build his fabric stash, shows samples of his work, demonstrates his method for preparing his salvaged-clothing finds for quilting, shares the design and auditioning processes he uses to build his unique designs, and fields questions from the audience. (Whew!) If that's not enough, Alex shows how to draft and customize a cable motif for hand or machine quilting, and we leave the studio for a field piece on the urban contemporary quilt scene in the lively city of Portland, OR.
Alex shows you how to draw and customize cables for all types of quilting.
