QUILT TALK Blog Hop Day 11 – BLACK – with Cheryl Sleboda

Day 11 is here! We’re doing the Quilt Talk BLACK bucket with the Mistress of the Sewing Skull goodies, Cheryl Sleboda of Muppin.com!

BLACK Bucket

Once I put the BLACK bucket together, I knew I needed to call Cheryl to see if she would host all those dancing skeletons! I’m so thrilled she said yes!

Cheryl is a whirling dervish of innovative quilt stuff: she’s done a lot with LEDs and electronics as fun light-up accessories for quilts, and she has revived some classic smocking techniques for quilts, yes quilts, in a sweet DVD.

I don’t have a pic of us together to share, but I’ll be getting one next week at Quilt Market, so keep your eyes peeled!

When I found out Cheryl was a comic book industry exec (I can hear my geeky son swooning at the thought) I thought she was pretty dang cool. Then she started posting all these beauty shots of one certain classic Mustang, and let’s just say I’m determined to be her new bestie.

Cheryl and Mustang

I’m a car girl through and through, and this pale yellow beauty, below, used to be my chariot of choice. A ’65 Impala 327 SS Convertible… glass packs and a 4-barrel carb – 13 to the gallon and oh, so fast!

Sam's Impala

I still happily drive a sports car as my daily driver. Our family motto is “Fly casual, Chewie.” (Not the actual quote, but hey, it’s close, and it gets the meaning across!) Here she is this afternoon, and yes, fall is upon us here in PDX!
