Bella Parade 13 : Post # 1

6:00 AM

Good morning and welcome to the Bella Parade!!!

And the first color of the day is

Now you have to guess the name of the color.
Here are 3 hints to do that
1. two words
2. X alkalie red
3. _ c _ _     g _ _ e _

And today I'm going to talk about the various color combinations that I think might work using this color.

Combined with Light Lime and Pesto it makes a terrific monochromatic scheme.

To make a complementary scheme, I'd love to pair it with Purple

To make a more creative color scheme, I'd select a Graphic theme combining it with Berrylicious & Black

If I was given the freedom to combine it with prints, I'd use  it with the Color me Retro by Jeni Baker for a retro feminine look

I'd love to combine it with the Greystone Luxe in Bloom by Sara Watson for a sophisticated look.

And with Retro Les Monsiurs by Tamara Kate to make the perfect quilt for my son!

If I had a daughter, I'd pair it with Flats by Angela Yosten for the cutest quilt!!!

And I'd pair it with a delicious spool of Aurfil #1231 (I must say its the nearest and not a perfect match!)

What would you pair our solid of the day with???
