FQS Bella Parade Post # 2



This is white with a tinge of yellow in it... You will find that there is a miniscule difference between 
PFD White (97), Ivory (60) and Snow (11) 

But when you combine them with cool colored solids or prints the difference is highlighted!
Want to see

Here are the results :

Isn't it fun that every one of them creates a totally different effect!

According to Wikipedia, "Ivory is an off-white color that resembles ivory, the material out of which the teeth and tusks of animals (such as, notably, the elephant and the walrus) is made. It has a very slight tint of yellow."

Used in combination with a tiny amount of warm colors, this color gives a royal feel!

When used with cool colors it gives an elegant look

Ivory is used in quilts as a base since a long time as it offsets other colors dramatically. It can be combined with a variety of colors...

Here are today Quilters Picks!

  1. I love ivory, our new kitchen cupboards are ivory. It says brides and elegance to me. I especially love it with white, when it reminds me of ice cream with a swirl of cream on the top.

  2. I love Janes selections! Then I scolled down to Angelas and they are beautiful too, those Sundaes look delish!

  3. Ivory is the background for my One Star blocks that sent to Moda for Quilts of Valor drive. It gives an aged comfortable look to the blocks I added to flickr group.


Thank you for your comments... I try to reply to all of them personally, but sometimes life is just too fast to do that... But I love hearing from you...
