It's been 50 years since the Beatles made their debut in the United States. While I was never much of a Beatles fan (I was too young at 4 years old), I do recognize many of their songs and remember listening to their hits on the radio. The girl in the next picture looks as though she could have been a screaming, crazy fan.
Although I was not a Beatles' fan, I associate yellow with my youth in the 1960's, and I can't really say why. Maybe it was the yellow submarine, maybe the mustard yellow in my mother's kitchen, which, incidentally, she hated and we still talk about.
This VW bug is definitely a memory of the 60's. And look at this darling drawing: isn't it great inspiration for a quilt!
Interestingly, I have a small piece of quilt top in these colors that my grandmother sewed.
And this gray and yellow brings us back to today. I keep promising myself that I will make a quilt in these happy colors.
