Bella Parade '13 : Grand Finale Giveaway

It always makes me feel bad when such a colorful and lively even comes to an end!

But, I know it will also end with a riot of colors!!!

So up for grabs is a Half Yard Bundle with 30 colors from the New Bella Parade Collection 2013!

Before I tell you how you can win it, though you have to bear with me a little more!!!

I would first like to thank all those who made it possible.

My first thanks goes to Fat Quarter Shop for sponsoring the event! They have been with me since a long time now and have supported me in all my ventures!!!

A big thank you to all my readers who left comments and entered!!!

A big thank you to my family for bearing with me when I got up and rushed to my PC on some days even before I brushed my teeth so that I could publish the posts before 6 am! I totally ignored them while I was doing that and only after the "Color of the Day" was published did they get their cup of morning tea!!!

So now, here's how YOU can win the Half Yard Bundle of 30 delicious colors!!!

1. Leave a comment. Of course! Tell me what part did you enjoy in the Bella Parade, how often would you love to do this again.... tell me anything.

2. Share about this giveaway. Share on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Blog - you get the hint? Share all you can. Leave a comment for every share. You can share it once everyday on all your platforms for one entry per day.

3. If you shop at Fat Quarter Shop, leave one comment for each invoice number from the past 3 months.

4. If you have ordered Bella Solids during the parade (they're 20% off till 2nd October) leave a comment with the Invoice Number and the number of yards. You get one entry per yard!

5. Tell me why are there 30 colors in the bundle but only 29 colors in the yardage! This answer will get you a double entry!

Are you ready?

I will draw a winner after my craft fair i.e. on Tuesday 8h October 2013.

Good luck!!!

Bella Parade '13 : Post # 28 & 29

Yeah you read that right. Its a double post today. I have been having internet issues. And have to end the parade with a double post!!!


The last color that we did was Sprout

Bella Solids Sprout Yardage SKU# 9900-267

Here are the two colors today

The first

Hints : 
1. I am an orange-colored citrus fruit which is closely related to the mandarin orange.
2. I also am a place in Orange County, Florida, a submarine telecommunications cable system, a 1997 novel by Edward Bloor, a DAAP music server, an early microcomputer manufacturer, a British confectionery company and a fictional character appearing in Marvel Comics.
3. _ A _ _ E _ I _ E

Here's color # 2

I am a two words name. Here are the hints :
 1. The first word means "tan-colored", from Anglo-Norman taunĂ© "associated with the brownish-yellow of tanned leather", from Old French tanĂ© "to tan hides", from Medieval Latin tannare, from tannum "crushed oak bark", used in tanning leather, probably from a Celtic source (e.g. Breton tann, "oak tree"). The second word is one we have visited before in this series!!! Think Mediterranean.
2. The first word also refers to a strong aged wine, a feminine given name and  a 1954 record album by Jackie Gleason.
3. _ A W _ Y                 O _ _ V _

Here are the monochromatic schemes for both.

I combined color # 1 with Bubblegum and Kansas Red

Bella Solids Bubble Gum Yardage SKU# 9900-88
Bella Solids Kansas Red Yardage SKU# 9900-150

For color # 2, I used Porcelain and Fir

Bella Solids Porcelain Yardage SKU# 9900-182

Bella Solids Fir Yardage SKU# 9900-278

And here are the complementary schemes 

I combined Color # 1 with Bright Turquoise.

Bella Solids Bright Turquoise Yardage SKU# 9900-226

And color # 2 with Horizon Blue

Bella Solids Horizon Blue Yardage SKU# 9900-111

For the creative scheme, I chose to go professional with Color # 1
I used it with Zen Grey and Steel

Bella Solids Zen Grey Yardage SKU# 9900-185
Bella Solids Steel Yardage SKU# 9900-184

For Color # 2, I went elegant and combined it with Feather and Yellow

Bella Solids Feather Yardage SKU# 9900-127

Bella Solids Yellow Yardage SKU# 9900-24

And now time for the prints.

Here are my top 10 choices or Color # 1
