Celebrity quilter Luke Haynes features in AccQuilt gallery

In July AccuQuilt welcomed celebrity quilter Luke Haynes and his “Fabric Figures” quilt exhibit to their showcase gallery. This exhibition is open to the public and on display until August 31. The opening reception on July 18 celebrated Haynes’ show and marked the start of his artist-in-residence with AccuQuilt’s Dream Studio.

While he was there, Haynes spent his time working on a variety of quilting projects including a quilting project he designed using repurposed dress shirts acquired from a local Goodwill.

After carefully disassembling the shirts, Haynes created his own blocks of fabric and die cut them into shapes using the Winding Ways die for the Go! Cutter system. Colors of blue, white, and various striped patterns gave his design an intricate look.

"I really liked my time working with the team at AccuQuilt and having them walk me through their tools,” Haynes said. “I now have a few new tricks up my sleeve and I am going to take these tools home and change the way I make quilts!"

The AccuQuilt Gallery is located at the AccuQuilt Omaha headquarters at 8843 S 137th Circle (near Cabela's, off Interstate 80).
