Look what I found, hidden in the back of the quilt cupboard! Can you believe those fabrics? Granted, there were few cotton prints to choose from in the 1970's, but even so... Just how would you describe that yellow: neon, fluorescent, dayglow? The historically accurate term is chrome yellow or cadmium. And look, it's got a companion print, which no doubt added to the appeal.
Worse than my fabric choice, I hand pieced these babies. spending hour after tedious hour constructing the Drunkard's Path and Crown of Thorns blocks. I even hand quilted them and made them into pillow tops. Can you imagine the decor they might have gone with? Too gaudy for words!
