if you want me to browse novelties, let me know. I do have several dump truck fabrics.
What? Dump truck??
Just because I am always encouraging everybody on the forum to toss stuff out?
I could use a moving van fabric. S.S. Kresge always hired Mayflower to move us but I am not particular if any of you guys have a fabric with moving van on it, I'll take a smidgeon.
My mom was always concerned about "lightening the load" and would throw stuff out before the moving van came. Like it was her duty to save money for the company. Humpfh.
I grew to hate the sight of that big yellow truck.
dump truck because of this sentence:
no moving vans, sorry.
You are correct!
I never actually saw a dump truck, you know .... that's why I didn't get the connection. It was all paperwork listing various sizes of gravel, tons of gravel, etc. I learned a lot about the layers of different kinds of rock that go into building a road in Ohio, a road that can stay intact despite freezing and thawing. I immediately forgot all about that stuff once we moved to Midland, Michigan and I got a job at Dow Chemical where I had to keep track of boxcars full of aspirin and other retail products of that fine company.
And once I became a stay-at-home mommy my brain really deteriorated.
oooh fascinating story!! Can't wait to see Citation's block!
good job Judy! I really like how these blocks are turning out!
you might have to transfer your stories to printable fabric labels and put them on the back of the quilt!!
Thanks for the encouragement, Suze.
The notebook I am writing in will accompany the quilt when it moves to my DD's home. That's good enough for me.
I love hearing your stories! You can remember things in such detail. I can't say as I remember that much about my childhood--just bits and pieces. You will have such a lovely heirloom to leave the future generations.
Well, if you do find a moving van, I have several pieces of fabric that looks like different kinds of gravel. I'd be more than wiling to share.
