Ben Venom recently worked on a comminssioned quilt for Pirate Press. Here Ben shares with us images and a few words on his most extensive quilt to date so far. Ben will be showing new work at Guerrero Gallery in November. - meighan
The Pirates Press Quilt was a commissioned piece by Owner / Operator Eric “Skippy” Mueller. The shirts are some from his own collection and those his label represents. The design is a combination of the Pirate Press logo with the Pirate Press Records logo. The quilting pattern (Red Stitching) forms a pirate ship when viewed from a distance. Measuring roughly 6' x 7'...the quilt is currently hanging behind Eric's desk in his office. It took me roughly 2 months to complete and was one the more challenging pieces I have made in recent years.
