Bella Parade '13 : Post # 16

You're right folks, yesterday's color was Honeydew!!!

And here's todays!!!

And here're the hints :
1. I am a 2 word name - first word a color and second a fruit!
2. I remind you of Mediterranean dishes!!! I'm healthy too!
3. _ _ E E _               O _ _ _ E

Have you noticed, I usually write the vowels in my hints & hide the consonants? I just noticed it!

For a monochromatic composition, I'll use it with Sage and Fir

For a complementary scheme, I'll pair it with Purple

For the creative combo, I 'll go with Country Red and Bright Turquoise

And now the prints I'd love to use this solid with!!!

I tried really hard to stick to the modern prints, since a natural inclination was towards the 1800's repro fabrics!

  18. The colour of the day is Green Olive
    I would use Hillside Bungalow by Joel Dewberry with Green Olive

  19. The Green Olive would look good with Azure Edges.....that's what i would pair it with. I absolutely love that combo!!!

    Thanks again

  21. I have posted 3 pics on FB of green olive but somehow the caption didn't show up

  22. Green Olive. I *love* Mediterranean dishes!

  23. Here is a photo with a close approximation of Green Olive

    Photo taken on a recent trip to the Smoky Mountains. If this were a quilt I think it would be called "low volume". This bird is very cool looking but what I think is interesting about the photo is the muted colors all except the pop of the olive green plants.

  24. Green Olive! The monochromatic look is cool!


  26. Green Olive is my guess.

  27. Green olive!
