FQS Bella Parade : Season 2 : Post # 6

Hi all, welcome to day # 6 and the color of the day today is

Bella Solids Egg Plant

Similar to but deeper than the Plum color of last week this color also is a beautiful addition to a quilt

This color looks great as sashing...

Especially in the bottled rainbow quilt block made by Katie from  Katie's Corner

I love how it coordinates with the donkey print by Laurie Wisbrun.

The use of eggplant on the sashing for this Echino log cabin quilt looks beautiful too...

Megan from Philistinemade is the maker of this beauty. 

This wonderful Eggplant-Green Quilt made by Harvest Craft's Quilts' Leslie is a stunner.

Did you like the beautiful quilts?

Do hop over to their blogs and tell them that. I'm sure they'll appreciate it.

Now coming to the second interesting part.

Choosing fabrics.

Like last time I'll stick to choosing FQ bundles for you to work with Bella Solids Eggplant.

I'd love to combine it with the Caterpillar Cocoon Fat Quarter BundleValori Wells for Free Spirit Fabrics. It will look regal.

The Magnolia Fresh Cut Fat Quarter BundleHeather Bailey for Free Spirit Fabrics has the freshness and the paleness to be accentuated by the dark Eggplant.

A combination with the Nightshade Fat Quarter BundleTula Pink for Free Spirit Fabrics  would be a bit daring, but I'm sure will look fantastic.

Eggplant and other bright solids used with the Multidot Fat Quarter BundleJackie Shapiro for Windham Fabrics  will make a really striking quilt, especially for the kids.

Did you like my choices?

What would you choose to use with the Eggplant?

Here's my FMQ Design of the day

This design is Malka inspired.

The squarish spirals are not easy, but not difficult to do... You can see some funny shapes where I struggled a little, but i'm happy with the way it turned out. I'd use it to quilt a quilt with a square based design!
