Stop by and see Cyndi Cassidy's Ride for Kids quilt. It is hanging in the classroom and will be there through Friday, 4 May. Cyndi created this king size (100" x 108") raffle quilt for the June 3, 2012, Albuquerque Ride For Kids™, and all proceeds benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. We have raffle tickets at the front desk ($3, two for $5), and the drawing will be on 2 June. When I asked Cyndi if she had thought of a name for her quilt, she thought for a moment and then suggested, "Freedom." "Freedom" from the disease that this project seeks to eradicate, the "freedom" that one feels as one takes to the open road on one's bike, and perhaps the "freedom" that comes when one realizes that "I wanted to make this quilt, and I have done it." When you have a chance to see this quilt, note how Cyndi has creatively used the overall print of the motorcycles.
