    So cute! I had to look twice, I thought the retreat center was the one at Threads of Time in Danville, Il.

    Love the Beetle, used to have one back in the day. If I remember correctly most people that used the Peace sign were so stoned that they'd have never noticed or cared if it was right side up or upside down. LOL "V" Peace, Baby!

    Very cute block. I too am designing my 60's quilt. I'm collecting very bright happy designs. I'm going to embroider some of our sayings from the day -- Make Love Not War, etc.

    As I remember those days, the peace sign didn't have the extra "leg" the kids use today. It had three spokes then instead of the four of today. I love the "bug"... Remember the VW bus with the peace sign and all the flowers all over it? DD could never understand why we were called FLOWER CHILDREN when we were not children....LOL Some pretty good memories of those lost years!!!
