Ben has been putting the final touches on an 8-foot plus wide quilt for the show, with bits and pieces of influence and material from AC/DC, Levi's denim, Pendleton fabric, GWAR, the legendary Lusty Lady, and maybe even a bit of a fabric touch from our own, Kristin Farr. We can't want to show you the final piece in Seattle.
