FQS Bella Parade Post # 17

A quick hello to all you guys... I have been crazy busy... (When am I not? But today has been a super busy + kid not behaving + all kinds of mishaps day!!!)

So on to our


Today we have another Muddy Color... Kind of reflects my mood at the moment...

Bella Solids Brown Yardage SKU# 9900-71

Moda U Brown us one of the most common choices for traditional quilts...

But it looks equally good on baby quilts

Feminine Quilts

Rag Quilts

As well as Modern Quilts

Today we do not have a guest Quilter to suggest you c-ordinates for this color. I had someone  scheduled and she could not send it in time...

So your guest quilter today, is Shruti from 13 Woodhouse Road... LOL

Brown is one of my least favorite colors... If used on its own that is... I like to add a little bit of jazz to it with wild combinations...

Here are my picks

Bella Solids Yellow Yardage SKU# 9900-24

Bella Solids Lime Yardage SKU# 9900-75

Bella Solids Amelia Orange Yardage SKU# 9900-161

Yellow Party Animal Yardage SKU# DC4157-YELL-D

Crazy For Dots & Stripes II Lime Green Mini Dots on White Yardage SKU# 8174-8

Fresh Flowers Dahlia Orange Flowers & Swirls Yardage SKU# 19453-14

I hope you like my choices... I have chosen them so that you can either use them all in a single quilt or use the solid + print + brown in a single quilt...

And here's the picks by Katy...

I'm too stressed out at this moment to give you guys the link to the fabrics... But if you wait for a while, you'll see those on her blog...

I'm just waiting for things to fall in place...

Meanwhile, you guys upload snaps in the pool. You know the new rules, don't you?

  1. You sound like a mum. I hope things get easier tomorrow.

    Deep breath, Shruti. And a cup of tea, maybe.
