March 7th – BUTTERCUP
Most people don’t know that the title of this post are part of the lyrics of a song called Buttercup Baby by The Foundations in 1967. Yes, yes. I know that it dates me. Significantly. However, the first part of the lyrics goes as follows: Why do you build me up? Buttercup baby, just to let me down, and mess me around…. I need you, Buttercup baby….
Well, today’s Kona cotton color of the day is Buttercup. And I can’t look at this color or the name of it without having this song play in my head. But, opposed to a portion of these lyrics, this color will NEVER let you down! And in 100% agreement with the middle portions of the song lyrics, “I need you”… oh, yes, we do!
I LOVE this color! And this color will make a fabulous background fabric color with some purples, lavenders, greens or pinks!
See the following Quilt? It has Buttercup as the background fabric! And it is SO WORTH IT!
What are your favorite neutrals as the backgrounds for your quilts?
