What's your favorite color?
This month mine is turquoise.
Despite having been traumatized in high school...
By a minimalist building with turquoise panels.
In the '60s I blamed it all on Frank Lloyd Wright
who favored the color. Here's his posthumous 1962 Marin County Civic Center Building
with the roof....
in swimming pool aqua.
The Wright look trickled down to vernacular architecture.
Most of those panels did not hold up well aesthetically or colorwise, fading over the decades.
Now I love the color.
A few turquoise quilts from online auctions.

Where are those turquoise cooktops now?
I found a few recent quilts with a '60s color palette. This
one from QuiltDabbler.
