another county line--aqua and red



My Grandma Dykstra's kitchen on our farm was a wonderful aqua/turquoise color with red counters and clock. We moved into this house when I was about 5 and my mother painted it a great pink with the red accents. In my memory it is two different places even though they were the same room, because I associate each with the woman and the color.
This quilt reminds me of Grandma's time.

Very interesting beautiful quilt! I like the color combination myslef! Red 30's prints are some of my favorites! The true bright solid ones are sometimes hard to find!

That's a great color combination - one of my favorites! I recognize some of those fabrics, too! My mom's kitchen is turquoise - countertops from the early 1960s.

The colour combination on this quilt is awesome - I would never have dreamed of putting red and turquoise together but it just goes so well in this quilt - looks a simple but very effective pattern too - one to store away for future reference methinks :o)

Wow, not a color combination I would have tried myself, but it works beautifully in that quilt. :)
