FQS Bella Parade Post # 25

Little time left... I'll be drawing a winner later this evening or early tomorrow morning!

Its already Day 25!!!

This month surely flew by very fast...

So the color of the day today is

Bella Solids Turquoise Yardage SKU# 9900-107

According to Wikipedia, "Turquoise is a slightly greenish tone of cyan (from Greek: κύανoς (transliterated: kýanos), meaning "blue") . The color is based on the gemturquoise. The term comes from the French for Turkish.

The first recorded use of turquoise as a color name in English was in 1573."

To me, this color looks regal... But yet it does not feel royalty! It feels like to common man's blue!

Turquoise quilts look stunning

What will you pair it with? I am thinking White and Maybe a little Gray...

Here's What Sarah from Pings and Needles says

I really associate this colour with Brighton.
Seafront railings, lamposts, bandstands etc. are all painted a pastel tealy-turquoise colour.  


and some days the sea and the sky are a combination of all these colours

So here are my picks - 
they aren't all in my usual highly saturated safe zone ... 
I thought I'd let Brighton do the choosing for a change!
