Richard Scarry Busytown From Quilting Treasures

And speaking of Quilting Treasures licensed character collections that tug at my nostalgia strings … coming soon (October, I believe) is Richard Scarry’s Busytown. I’ve shared my love for Richard Scarry here before — as a kid I loved Cars and Trucks and Things That Go far more than Barbie! I’d spend hours looking for goldbug and planning which kind of food-car I’d drive when I grew up (pickle, of course). So even though the colors are kind of boyish in this collection, don’t count the girls out.

Busytown also includes a border print and a panel print to make soft books or incorporate into quilts.

  2. Holly says:

    My daughter LOVES Busytown (especially Huckle the Cat and Lowly Worm) and I’m sure she’d be thrilled with something made from this great fabric!

  3. Monica says:

    My son is going to go nuts!

  4. Yes, the kids over here will be nuts. Please announce when it’s for sale!

    What? Not the Banana Car??

    I love Richard Scarry! My daughter was obsessed with SCARRY’S BEST WORD BOOK EVER when she was one (and I always attributed her huge vocab at that age to that book). She’s 10-going-on-16 now, so I’m wishing I had a little one whom I could buy this fabric for.
