FQS Bella Parade Post # 11



Bella Solids Orange Yardage SKU# 9900-124

Lovely color, isn't it?

"The colour orange occurs between red and yellow in the visible spectrum at a wavelength of about 585–620 nm, and has a hue of 30° in HSV colour space. It is numerically halfway between red and yellow in a gamma-compressed RGB colour space, the expression of which is the RGB colour wheel. The complementary colour of orange is blue. Orange pigments are largely in the ochre or cadmium families, and absorb mostly blue light." says Wikipedia, "The colour is named after the orange fruit, after the appearance of the ripe fruit. Before this word was introduced to the English-speaking world, the colour was referred to as ġeolurēad(yellow-red).
The first recorded use of orange as a colour name in English was in 1512, in a will now filed with the Public Records Office."

Now over to our guests for their suggestions :
First our guest quilter is Melissa Corry from Happy Quilting 
"My assigned color was Bella Solids Orange #124. Orange is such a bright, warm, and fun color and really makes a statement. I was so happy to get Orange because I think sometimes we tend to shy away from it because it is so bold. I really enjoyed the challenge of taking on an "underdog" color and paring it with excellent complimenting colors to make a stunning statement. I picked my favorite color combo, but believe me when I say, the possibilities go on and on for this color :)"

  1. Shruti, I spent a lot of time taking orange pics when I got home from work tonight and tried to upload 115 photos of orange items today but was unable because Flickr said I was "over" my "limit." I would have to pay, like, $24.95, or some such amount, and I just can't do that at this time. And I spent more time deleting all my brown photos from the other day and it STILL said I was over my limit. I don't get it. But, I tried!


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...
