One more summer quilt


Made last summer, it contains mostly thrift store fabrics inspired by a 1960's apron (brown background with daisies, hearts and yellow strawberries.)




As I was choosing the other fabrics, I kept hearing a song from the 1960's, "Incense and Peppermints," by Strawberry Alarm Clock. Apparently it was telling me it's a 1960's quilt!




OK, I got the message, and made sure to include a few blocks that represent the Civil Rights Movement.



I hope you've all had a great summer!

I love this vibrant quilt. I also see that yellow has made home in your stash... Black and white adds nice spark and makes it three dimensional quilt!
I miss cutting and sewing :(
Keep inspiring me Nifty, I am almost there!

A sizzling summer quilt. Great use of thrift market fabrics. Like that you show the back.

The adjectives others have used - vibrant and sizzling - are right on point; what a wonderful quilt! Thanks for sharing. And as far as I'm concerned, summer is not over until my long Labor Day weekend is over, nevermind that the kids have been in school for 2 weeks already. I am hanging tight to summer, refusing to relinquish my grip until I absolutely have to!
