Quilting 2.0

Like a lot of people, I've never been into quilting. Sometimes I saw a quilt and thought ... yes, nice, nice fabrics, but that was it. I like the idea behind the quilt though, existing fabrics, emotional value.

Bare with me, check out punk-quilter Ben Venom. This is what he says about himself:

"I’m interested in juxtaposing traditional handmade crafts with extreme elements found on the fringes of society. My work can be described as opposing forces colliding at lightening speed. Imagery found in vintage tattoos, the occult, and motorcycle gangs are stitched together with recycled materials using techniques usually relegated to your Grandmothers sewing circle. Serious, yet attempting to take on a B movie Horror film style where ridiculousness becomes genius. The question remains... Can I play with madness?"

Rest assure Ben, yes you play madness like a boss!
