Heavy Metal Quilts

Is there a heavy metal rock fan lurking under your quilter's exterior (or even an actual heavy metal rocker)? 

Then you might like Ben Venom's quilts.  You can learn more about him in this well illustrated  interview with Meighan O'Toole, who blogs about contemporary art. For example ...

Can you tell us about how you educate yourself around the craft?

I have recently made some contacts within the quilt world and have learned a whole bunch of new techniques and shortcuts from a couple of nice ladies. Old ladies love me! Every time I go to a sewing/fabric store I ask a ton of questions and go home and try out what I learned.
