FQS Bella Parade Post # 18

Its a lovely sunny day today... And so the color I've chosen is also fresh... 

The name reminds us of fruits and spring and fun picnics with parents when we were kids and with kids when we're parents!

So the color of the day is 

Bella Solids Raspberry Yardage SKU# 9900-140

This color is refreshing but unfortunately, it is not gender neutral... Cant you see it has "SHE" written all over it?

or even when its used in modern QAYG blocks

This color looks different in the snap but it is Raspberry...

This is a stunning work

Deviating from the topic, but this one reminds me of another one I saw today, and hold your breath, its simply stunning...

Scrappy log cabin triangles

Its made by Lynne from Lily's Quilts for her Brit Quilts Swap Partner... Lucky Partner!

Back to Raspberry...
Here's another one, this time, there's silk - Chinese - used...

Leave a comment and tell me...

About the contest you know the rules

1. You can enter ONLY ONE photograph  in the next 24 hours! 
2. Irrelevant or disqualified photographs will be removed from the group pool... 
3. If anyone is found uploading photographs NOT CLICKED BY THEM BUT DOWNLOADED FROM THE INTERNET  they will be banned from the group.
4. The photograph MUST contain the "Color of the Day" - Raspberry!
5. Uploads allowed until 11.59 pm 18th May 2011, GMT. 


  1. I've finally been able to post a photo to the flickr group. Long ago I had my living room decorated in raspberry and teal. This painting received the seal of approval for multiple decorators as having raspberry in the dresses of the Ladies of Palm Beach.
    I hope it is titled according to the new rules as I emailed a question on this and never received a reply. I didn't see the answer on flickr discussion either. So, I'm posting questions here. Do you let participants know when and why their photos are deleted?

  2. Not to complain too much...but ....I just noticed that the closing time for photos is GMT at midnight. Since I live almost at the very end of the international date line, that means that I have to take a picture and post it by 5 p.m. my time. I've been posting pictures the last coupld of days, but I guess they won't count as they won't be posted in the time. I work until 4:30 p.m. then drive home for an hour. I'm not likely to be able to post by 5 p.m. on work days. Doesn't seem fair.


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...
