Rollin into The Quilt Fest of New Jersey- March 6-9, 2014- Somerset, New Jersey. Hope you have a chance to see this 27 piece “Cool Classic Rides” collection! Thanks to Mancuso Inc. Valdani Threads and to Deborah Stanley.
All 27 ” Cool Classic Rides” stitched heavily with Valdani threads. First Mancuso show kicks off Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival, February 27th-March 2, 2014 in Hampton, Virginia. Send me a couple of photos if you plan to be there!
Hope to see ya on the road,
Hope you have a chance to view the collection up close and personal! The concept began in 2011. Cut-up quilts, leftover fabric painted pieces, men’s vintage ties and wool scraps define each car. All 27 cars have approx. 15-25 tiny pieces of fabric to compose each ride. All 27 heavily stitched using Valdani cotton threads. Many thanks to Mancuso Inc. Valdani Threads and Deborah Stanley.
Its been a wild and crazy ride. Two years ago I started with my first cool ride, Mini Cooper. Even though the mini will not be touring with the others, it’s a cool ride, not a classic. Finally in the wrapping up stage of the 27 piece collection. Sizes vary from 12 x 12 to 24 x 30. So excited to have “Cool Classic Rides” debut at Soft Expressions Upstairs Gallery this September, 2013. In addition, “Cool Classic Rides” Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival 2014 through the World Quilt Show-Florida. The entire collection will be featured at the Avantgarden Gallery here in Santa Ana 2015, specific date/dates pending. Many thanks to Valdani Threads. I absolutely love the quality of these beautiful variegated hand dyed cotton threads. All 27 cars have been heavily stitched using these fantastic spools of eye candy. Thank you for your sponsorship! Happy girl indeed!
