Have you checked out the Oct-Nov 2012 Quilters Newsletter issue yet? There is great stuff in the magazine as always. I was really excited about Pam Rocco’s column this time. Pam shares her views with us and illustrates her thoughts with her quilts. And Quilters Newsletter offers you a free web pattern of one of her quilts in every issue. This time we chose City Traffic.
I created all the illustrations for this pattern and one of them was an Airstream Trailer. Drawing that trailer brought back memories of a family vacation. My parents took us on a trip from Ohio to California and back. We had an Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser station wagon, an Apache pop-up camper trailer, two adults and five kids, all in one space. We camped our way across the west and had a great time. The only moment of regret was in Lake Mead, Nevada. As my dad pulled into the campground, we were amazed at the sight of a dozen Airstream Trailers, all parked together. They were big, shiny and most of all, air-conditioned. Lake Mead is hot, really hot in July. Our faithful little Apache just could not compete and we all wished for a little of that air-conditioned luxury. We survived and have great memories of our trek to the West Coast, but to this day, I would still like to travel in an Airstream Trailer just once.
