Mustang, Corvette, Motorcycles and other Cool Classic Rides will be making a pit stop at the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza this September 15-18, 2016. These amazing auto quilts will be on display all four days of the Quiltfest at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks / Valley Forge, PA.
Teresa Shippy exclaims, “They’re back, bigger and bolder than ever in Cool Classic Rides 2!” CCR2 was motivated by Cool Classic Rides 1’s success, excitement and favorable comments from all. CCR2 comprises a number of classic alternative rides in addition to classic cars. This second collection has also been created from her cut-up quilts, leftover painted fabric pieces, vintage men’s ties, wool scraps and lots of threadwork. Take a walk down memory lane and enjoy the rides as you view these and the hundreds of other quilts, wearable art, sewing, wool and fiber art at the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza.
So bring the person in your family that would appreciate these works of automotive art as you will also appreciate the quilting involved to make them. Be inspired to make your own quilted textile work of art that brings back fond memories of your first car, motorcycle and, yes, even a bicycle. Whether you use your current stash of fabric or shop the vast Quiltfest merchants’ mall; you will be sure to find everything you need to make your own heirloom quilt this September at the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza.
