FQS Bella Parade : Season 2 : Post # 8

Welcome to day # 8 of the Bella Parade

The color of the Day is

Bella Parade Mustard

I love the bright and crispness of this color...

Here are some of my finds on the www with this color

The first is a pouch made by my awesome co-host and someone I can now call a friend, Emily

I love the way he has used the solids along with the HSTs to compose the pouch! She's a pro at "winging" it!

Here's a fabulous Whole Cloth Quilt that Gordita spotted at a quilt show in May 2010. If you know the maker of this quilt, please tell her/him that I am totally in love  with this one!

I am ready to give away one arm (I'll need at least the other one to help me quilt) to reach this level of expertise!

Toni from Make it Perfect made this beautiful Mustard & Grey Quilt for a newly wed couple! I love her selection of color as well as the quilt!

Now coming to the fun part! This segment is the one that I enjoy the most...

Window shopping!

There are many more for you guys to select from the FQS Fat Quarter Bundles Section

And here's my FMQ Design of the day

I have quilted this piece with text...

Since I'm planning to convert this into a cushion cover, I decided to use the word "home" in different languages!

It would be wonderful to quilt the name of the recipient or the occasion on the quilt too!

Would you like to win ONE YARD of mustard?

Here's how you can

1. Create a pinboard with the name "FQS Bella Parade : Season 2"

4. The winners will be selected randomly and announced in the weekend giveaway post.
5. All entries will qualify to win the Bella Solids 2012 Fat Quarter Bundle in the weekly giveaway.

And tomorrow we're going to have another wonderful guest to share her choices of fabrics with you...

She is another fellow blogger whom I can call a friend!
Many of you might know her, though she has been away from the blogland for a while!

After she had reclaimed herself and found a balance between vintage and modern she's now humming her hearts tune!

Any guesses who the guest might be?
