Sunday Quilt Inspiration: YELLOW

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.

Looks so refreshing! Wouldn't this be perfect mixed with our Miss Ollie's Sweet Tea?

Yellow is so welcoming! It might just consume my life

Love the yellow! It is my favorite color, along with purple. And red. And blue. And a few other colors. But yellow is my MOST favorite. Thanks for the inspiration.l
