Fabric roll of 40 2.5-inch by 44-inch (width of fabric) strips from the Dapper Prints collection by designer Luke Haynes for Moda Fabrics. From the designer (Luke): ‘This series is a conversation between my history as an architect and my projects as a maker of quilts. I use a lot of re-claimed clothing in my quilts so I wanted to create fabrics that have the same texture and intrigue I find in using shirting fabrics – giving a nice weave so others can find the love for the fabrics that I have. I chose the most recognizable weaves so that the line has a recognizable texture yet the colors really pop these into a new way of thinking and use. The prints are made to add some fun imagery and larger-scale texture to the wovens, and to put a bit of panache into quilts, bags and wearables made with Dapper. Really the possibilities are endless.’ Subverting the traditional quilting form by integrating modern concepts, his art transforms the comfortably familiar into the visually evocative. Luke Haynes was born and raised across the American South. With a formal training in architecture at Cooper Union, New York, Haynes continues to experiment with quilting art while exploring art and architecture across the globe. A chance encounter with a box of fabric remnants sparked Mr. Haynes’ imagination. His first quilt, measuring 7’x10′, led him through years of experimentation and improvements over the years that he has been quilting. Further honing his style, Mr. Haynes developed a system to piece manageable parts into a larger whole, applying a modern design sense to a familiar process. He uses reclaimed materials from the communities he works with in his projects to speak with the textile language of the area.
