Scrap Happy

The dumpster was full so I could spend a couple much needed days in my sewing room.  We are moving again so I have been sorting and tossing and when the dumpster is full for the week I need to do something else.  I have leafed through all my old quilt magazines some stacks two deep in the  closet and when I haven't looked at them since I put them in the closet almost 10 years ago it is time to get rid of them. We are moving back to the town where hubby and I grew up to be closer to family and other fun activities since it is a college town.
I must sew 3 baby quilts before we move the end of August.  This is more of a toddler play quilt for a little boy than a baby quilt.  I can just see him looking for the tractors that match then driving over the tractors with his tractors and trucks. Or putting off nap time by playing I Spy with My Little Eye and searching for the black cow and the rooster then the pheasant.  I just pulled out some bundles of scraps from earlier quilts and sewed and flipped and sewed some more.  Then trimmed them all to 12 1/2 inches and sewed them some more.  The sweet hum of my sewing machine  --Ann--

Looks like a fun quilt and perfect for a toddler to explore on. Good luck with your shifting organising... I've been going through my magazines lately, gosh I didn't realise I'd accumulated so many! Love your jersey in your previous post :-)

Topsy Turvy Tractors will be a delight to any kid! good job! But oh, how I hated hearing you speak about a week's worth of decluttering to the dumpster. Moving is awful and at least you aren't forced to do it in snow.
