Posing with the rides

Me with a few of the “Rides”.  Valdani Threads in the palms of my hands.  So incredibly jazzed to have my second collection soon to be in travel mode with Mancuso Quiltfest Festivals.  “Cool Classic Rides 2” debuts February 25-28, 2016 at the Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton, Virginia.  15-25 snippets of leftover quilted fabrics, men’s ties and wool scraps are used to create these funky quirky rides.  Hope you have a chance to catch a show or two to see these rides up close and personal.  They may just bring back a memory or two!  See you at the shows!  Shout-outs to Quiltfest Festivals, Valdani Threads and to Deborah Stanley.  Note: See the VW Bus next to the chair? I often will collect vintage cars to add to my collection.  #lovetheclassics

Woody

Hope to provoke a memory or two and a smile from days gone by!  A cool Woody in the fleet. CCR2 kicks off at the Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival, February 25-28, 2016  All  24 “Rides” are heavily stitched using fabulous Valdani Threads.  #rockinaclassicwoody- See you there!

Artsy note:  It’s not unusual for me to mark up my hands with color. Always on the prowl for the perfect hue! Works for thread shades as well as markers.

 

Do not be afraid of mellow yellow
