Bella Parade 2013 - the rules!

So now you're all geared up for the Bella Parade 2013.
For those who were not there the last two times, and for those who have been so caught up in everything else that you cannot remember what it is, here's what exactly is Bella Parade.

Bella Parade is a month long extravaganza on my blog where we all enjoy a riot of colors and you get an opportunity to win some of the 75 yards of Bella Solids I'm offering here!!!

yes, 75 yards!!!

Now I know I have got your complete attention!

First, enter the Launch Giveaway for a chance to win a FQ Bundle of the New Bella Solids that we're going to feature here in the next month.

Starting September 1st, we will have a "Color of the Day". This color will be one out of the 30 new colors that Moda has released this year.

We will discuss about each color and its use in quilts! I will also have links to "solids only" quilts made by some of the awesome quilters in blogland for some eye candy!

Apart from that you get an opportunity to win 1 yard of fabric each day.

I'm changing the rules this time, though, to make it even more fun.

1. The Color wont be named.
But you will be given 3 hints that will help you guess the color. Guessing the color will be your first and mandatory entry to win. It does not matter if you're wrong. You have to leave a comment with the "Name" of the color. Don't worry, the comments will be moderated during the Parade, so nobody is going to 'copy' your answer!

2. For extra entries, you have to post links to photos clicked by you with the Color of the Day in it.
One entry per photo. You can enter as many as you want. They could be anywhere, your blog, Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram... Absolutely anywhere on the www. The only condition is that IT MUST BE CLICKED BY YOU. If anyone is found to link to somebody else's photo, they will be banned from the event! To increase your chances to win, enter as many photos as you can. 1 comment per photo link.

You get 24 hours to enter the draw to win 1 yard of the "Color of the Day"
 The post will be live everyday at 6.00 am Indian Time. And only the entries before 6.00 am the next day will be considered valid.

Winners of all 7 days of the week will be announced on every Sunday.

Apart from this, there will be a weekly giveaway every Sunday (i.e. on the 8th, 15th, 22nd & 29th September) for a FQ Bundle!
For this you will have to leave a comment on the weekend post. If you buy any Bella Soilds from Fat Quarter Shop during the Parade, you get ONE entry for EVERY YARD of solids you buy! Leave a comment with the #of yard of BELLA SOLIDS only along with your invoice #

And at the end of the Parade, we'll have a HUGE Giveaway. The winner will get a Half Yard Bundle of the New Bella Solids!!! 15 yards in all!!!

So are you ready to have some fun?


  1. Hi Shruti. This sounds fun. I just don't quite understand what 'clicking on a photo' means. Could you explain? Thanks :-)


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...
