I finally did it! Yep, my ‘Trailer Trash’ quilt is done. I started this quilt for ‘Trailer Trash’ my 1959 Aljo trailer, two years ago. Unfortunately, Trailer Trash died in July of 2010.
A freak wind came up on a perfectly calm sunny summer afternoon and ripped her open like a can opener. I heard a terrible roaring sound and looked out the window to see her being demolished before my eyes.
I had been remodeling her, she had major water damage, so her skin was open and that wind just opened her up and flattened her in no time.
Needless to say, after this, I didn’t want to think about trailers, quilts or decorating one. But thanks, to a dear friend, Gracie, I was talked into looking for another one and found ‘Driving Ms. Daisy’ in October of 2010.
I picked a Mexican theme and tried to use some of the colors in my quilt, so that, if and when, I finished it…she would match…a bit.
Here’s a view of part of the kitchen in the new trailer.
I think my new quilt will feel right at home inside Ms. Daisy.
(Yes, that is me at a Mexican themed party, last summer at my friend, Mig’s. She is working on another trailer and it will be Mexican, like mine! I can’t wait to see it.)
I have so much more decorating to do before the Cabelas' show. A bunch of local, Sisters on the Fly will be displaying their vintage trailers at Cabelas’ in Stateline, Idaho, on April 21st, from 9-4. And MaryJane Butters (of MaryJane’s Farm ) told me she will be there with her newly decorated Airstream! I can’t wait to see it! You just know it is going to be full of sweet things!
Join some parties….
