Teapots and Butterflies

I found two fun fabrics on a pieced squares scrap quilt.  This is another from the family collection that I have been repairing.   See - Whirling Hexagons and Log Cabin and Capital S.

Fabric number one - turquoise teapots.

Placing the teapots with these gentle florals and the little birds in a flowering tree (upper right) make this part of the quilt feel like a country cottage.

Fabric number two - butterflies.

Apple green and brilliant yellow on a red pillow ticking print!  Now there's a sunny day for you!  Not to mention a popular new color choice in the late 60s and on into the 70s.  My 8th grade graduation dress, 1968, was this green with yellow and bright pink flowers.  Yup.


  1. I cannot bring myself to love that apple green. But it is cheerful, I'll give it that. :)

    1. Yes, it's a pretty astonishing color combination, for sure. I guess it helps that I do remember when that green was considered a really groovy color. ;-)
