Good morning and welcome to the Bella Parade!!!


And the first color of the day is

Now you have to guess the name of the color.
Here are 3 hints to do that
1. two words
2. X alkalie red
3. _ c _ _     g _ _ e _


And today I'm going to talk about the various color combinations that I think might work using this color.


Combined with Light Lime and Pesto it makes a terrific monochromatic scheme.




To make a complementary scheme, I'd love to pair it with Purple



To make a more creative color scheme, I'd select a Graphic theme combining it with Berrylicious & Black



If I was given the freedom to combine it with prints, I'd use  it with the Color me Retro by Jeni Baker for a retro feminine look


I'd love to combine it with the Greystone Luxe in Bloom by Sara Watson for a sophisticated look.


And with Retro Les Monsiurs by Tamara Kate to make the perfect quilt for my son!


If I had a daughter, I'd pair it with Flats by Angela Yosten for the cutest quilt!!!


And I'd pair it with a delicious spool of Aurfil #1231 (I must say its the nearest and not a perfect match!)

  7. There is definitely some acid green in these co-op mug rugs I made to commemorate the United Nations International Year of Co-operatives. I made these for my colleagues. By the way, the rainbow is one of the symbols representing co-operatives. We had it before the gay community. Link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/peacelovequilt/9028611433/

  33. Acid Green. What a great idea. I love green with purple but I have never thought to use this sort of green, normally I go with more traditional greens.

  35. Acid green. I will have to look and see what I can find to go with this.

  36. Acid green... since green is the solid I buy most of after white, I'm so surprised I haven't bought any of this before!
