Ann Turley – A
The Tow Truck
Materials used – commercial cottons, crystal organza, charcoal and pastel pencils.
This is the second vehicle quilt I have made, the first being sometime last year. I’m drawn to the lines and texture in vintage cars and trucks, particularly if they are rusty and dented. While this tow truck is a Ford from the 1930’s, I created the hood ornament to suit my needs by encircling the letter “a”. This series I’m working on is all about the front grilles and I am working on several more, enough to present to a local gallery for a possible exhibition. (The folks in my town love classic cars.)
