A Diamond in the Rough

I was wandering through our local Goodwill store and came across this quilting book with a copyright date of 1977.

After lots of giggling at the dated photographs which included icky yellow appliances, giant printed wallpaper, and funky little TV's I landed on this page.

I'm in love and gotta have one!
Help me out here, is it the colors (I've never been drawn to solids) or the pattern or both?
It's such a happy quilt.

OMG I want this for Lauren! The quilt you made her is her favorite and she is torn between "her favorite my friend made" and one I made! When she is very tired.....it's your quilt! LOL!

I think the colours scream seventies but it is a lovely pattern.

I was married in 1977 and our first house had an orange kitchen!
