Kitchen Quilt Love

(the kitchen print is from my vintage stash)

The counter tops in my folks house are still aqua.  When I go home it's like stepping back in time.  Mr. Creations grew up with a pink, black and white kitchen.  We are children of the 1950s!

When I was young my mother decided to redo the kitchen from aqua to bright orange (it was the 70's). I still dislike orange as a result. Anyway I love that fabric. Is it vintage? I'm looking forward to seeing the kitchen quilt come together.

fun fabrics! I didn't grow up with an aqua kitchen, but my parents' house had checkerboard red and black floor tiles in the living room.

No surprises that I am rather partial to the aqua and pink, right?!

I remember my grandma had a washer and dryer in aqua. That color brings back great memories.

My parents' kitchen was pink, black and white in the 50's. So was my Dad's '55 Chevrolet Belair. I don't recall anything aqua but that just be my fading memory.

Now is that a blast from the past or what?

We had mustard fronts with a rather fetching grey and white sketchy worktops. Super dooper floral linoleum flooring, in diarrhoea tones. That was cutting edge seventies rural scotland for you.

While I would not want a kitchen in those colors, the fabric is way too cute!
