FQS Bella Parade Post # 20

5:25 PM

I'm super excited about today's color!!! Its my favorite... I use it a lot in combination with black and white! I even did DH's showroom in these colors!

So, the color of the day is

RED


Bella Solids Red Yardage SKU# 9900-123


How do you use this color??? The best way is the red and white quilts... And I'm going to highlight these in my post today...







People visit the "Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts" show presented by the American Folk Art Museum at the Park Avenue Armory on March 30, 2011 in New York City. The 650 American quilts from three centuries are coverings created mostly by anonymous quilters in the 19th century.  It is the single largest quilt exhibition ever displayed in one venue in New York.

All these are no doubt work of arts! I'd love to make a traditional red and white quilt some day!

What will you  pair it with?

Lets ask our guest quilter, Leena from Creative Instinct... She is one of the very few Indian Quilters that I know!

"Red is one of my favorite colors as its so versatile. Team it with bottle green and you have christmas---team it with yellow and light green for a bright summer look---team with red to get that classic elegance---team with black and the kids are ready for a game of football. just pair it with any  color to change the mood."


So what does Leena suggest?
