John Lefelhocz comments : "Fossil fuels are bad, but cars are so cool. And thus the desire continues to burn, burn, burn and the flames keep getting higher. Will we ever find a solution?"

Lyrics from the Johnny Cash song "Ring of Fire," a #1 1963 hit written by June Carter and Merle Kilgore, border the quilt. Cash and Carter married in 1968.

Love is a burning thing
And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

The taste of love is sweet
When hearts like ours meet
I fell for you like a child
Oh, but the fire went wild

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire
