This Funky VW Bus Is Still Rollin On!

Yay! Just Shipped this cool ride to Sacred Threads Exhibition. On it’s way! Was thrilled to receive the news that my VW Bus was juried in. Had this crazy idea back in 2010; “Cool Classic Rides” What if cool vintage cars from back in the day, all created in left-over scraps, wool and vintage men’s ties along with plenty of Valdani Threads! I mean, wouldn’t this be a cool thing to see. Bold, colorful and most importantly hard bodies that people remembered in their lives and connected to. Sacred Threads Exhibition, July 10-26, Herndon Virginia. This VW Bus was part of my first collection that traveled via Mancuso Quiltfest circuit last year. Stay tuned for my 2nd collection also traveling via Quiltfest. CCR2 sponsored by Valdani Threads and I’m absolutely thrilled to have Deborah Stanley back as curator. Very cool things ahead! Stay tuned. Keepin it real and always fun!

61 Thunderbird

Another cool classic for sure! 1961 Thunderbird!  About 24″ in width.  Just breaking away from the window area.  Starting to stitch the body of this ride.   Lovin Black Night- M91  and 0120 Stormy Sky.  Variegated cotton and 35wt.  Both are used in the hood area.  Love the nice contrast in tones.  Valdani ThreadsCCR2 in 2016 via QuiltfestBack to work!  Keep on rollin…….

Rockin the Rides for 2016


Up next! A very cool 1970 Dodge Super Bee.  Gotta love the funk in this cool classic.  Thought it would be kinda cool to show you the size, 24″ across.  Even as I’m holding it you still can’t see the full length but I think you get the idea. Going to be a great collection! CCR2 in 2016.  Be sure to follow Mancuso Quiltfest for all news!  Stay tuned!

Frame It!

This framed artwork photo was sent to me today.  I know its a preference thing, but, I really try to encourage peeps that purchase my pieces, especially if they are smaller works like the “Rides” to invest in framing.  Not to mention it also helps to protect/preserve the art.  Beautifully framed Mitchel!  See you at Quiltfest Oasis Palm Springs 2016!   “Cool Classic Rides 2″ coming 2016.
