    I'm thinking that's not right. Those are too modern for the 60's in my opinion.

    That's what I'm thinking, now if it was tye-dye, I would agree, but not these neon colors...

    but it is a pretty colorful quilt!

    I think the hot pink and lime green were in around then... or maybe it would have been the very early 70's.

    You never saw any of the florescent colors from the late 60s and early 70s?

    I remember in 1968, day-glo green, yellow, orange and pink were very popular together.

    And then you had the psychedelic brights.

    We had cooler colors, too. Remember ice blue? And purple was big. Hot pink? Tangerine?

    But maybe you just don't remember the sixties. ;-) ;-)

    I remember the "anything goes" 1960s, and if these are polyester, they probably weigh a heck of a lot. But WARM!! If I remember correctly, they wore like iron, lasted through washing after washing. I really feel that this IS poly, might be a good deal for a vacation cabin. For winter use.

    I remember the 60's I remember bright paints, BUT not materials. Maybe very late 60's or more into 70's when the hippies were in... lol:

    I used these colors in the early 70's. The fabric used was polyester/cotton.

    I was in 7th & 8th grades during 1968-69, and I remember I had lime green, hot pink, purple and bright yellow clothing. These colors were definitely "in" during the 60's in Los Angeles.

    being a child of the 60s, I had some pretty wildly intense colored clothing (an orange and purple jumper got more than its share of wearings). so that quilt may well have been from that era.

    Oh yeah... I had hot pink, bell bottomed, wide waistband poly pants in the sixties, and thought I was hot stuff..! :oops: Those colors are VERY familier. Although, I would guess that this quilt is polyester, not cotton. LOL

    When I looked item had been deleted.

    I have a Yorkie too. He's 4.4 lbs. Yours looks the same size. Aren't they just the most adorable dogs?
