Beatles finished quilt tops

I’m continuing getting my backlog of quilts listed on Etsy…

I grew up on the Beatles music and watching the Yellow Submarine movie. Even now, any time I say “PhD”, I say it as a single syllable, “fd” because of this movie. It also is the only reason why I’ve considered getting a PhD. I love the blue meanies and Jeremy Hillary Boob, PhD (the brown body + blue face guy in the center of the panel.

VIP / Cranston fabric put out a line based on the Yellow Submarine movie a few years ago and I bought enough for these 2 quilts.

The first, All You Need Is Love is a panel in the center, framed by some of the complimentary fabrics from the line.

The second uses the Yellow Submarine panels, framed by the holes fabric (“there’s a hole in me pocket”) and some of the brighter fabrics for the line.

Beatles quilts

Growing up, the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine was one of my favorite movies (though I get it a lot more now). When this fabric line came out a few years ago from VIP Cranston Village fabrics, I had to get some. I made two quilts, one focusing on the All You Need is Love panel and one with Yellow Submarine. I wanted to showcase the fabric so I used simple rectangles of fabric and basic quilting to make the fabric pop.
