FQS Bella Parade Post # 22

Another week coming to an end... 
And starting a fresh week with a fabulous color

Bella Solids Dill Yardage SKU# 9900-77

A whole cloth quilt in this color would be absolutely fabulous...

And so would be a traditional Dill + White Quilt

A simple patchwork can put a smile on anyone's face

It looks equally stunning as a component of a modern quilt

So, what will you pair this "Patrick's Day" Color with??

Let us ask our guest quilter, Jamie Mueller from Sunflower Seeds...

"I was assigned the color Dill (77) and I love this color. My favorite color is green and this Dill seems to go with a lot of fabrics! "

And here's what she has picked for us

  1. This is a tough one. I prefer my dill in pickles, not quilts. I like it about as much as brown...but I will endeavour to find a dill photo for you Shruti, hehe.

  2. I uploaded a photo with color similar to the dill in the Bella image. Our dill in the garden is actually a different shade of green. I like to pair dill with purples.
    Did you receive my email about mailing address for the Pink fabric?


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...
