Bella Parade '13 : Post # 3

Welcome back!!!

Another day, another color!

But first, yesterday's color : It was Avocado. Did you get it right?

Moving on to today's color

And here are the hints :
1. Triangle
2. Please do not get lost
3. _ E _ _ U _ A

What would I pair this with???
I love the 'watery' feel of the color! Its simply beautiful!

First to make a monochromatic combination...

I'd use it with Breeze 
and Lagoon

Wouldn't they make a fab quilt???

Now for a complementary color scheme, I'd pair it with some Betty's Orange

And now time for some creative combinations... I will, obviously, go with a tropical theme and pair it with Gray and add some color with some Peach

Doesn't it look fabulous?

Now pairing it with prints :

My favorite-est is the Feature Just My Type by Patty Young for Michael Miller Fabrics

Next, I'd also love to pair it with the Moda Low Volume Bundle!

And some awesome sketchy fun with Flight Patterns by Tamara Kate for Michael Miller Fabrics

Lately, most of the fabric that I love is by Tamara Kate. I love the sketchy look and the hand drawn designs!

Next, I'd also use it with some Azure Edges by Laura Gunn for Michael Miller Fabrics

To make a kids quilt, I'd love to pair it with Nice People Nice Things by Helen Stubbings for Red Rooster Fabrics

In the upcoming lines, I'd love to use it with Cypress Acacia by Tula Pink for Free Spirit Fabrics 
which will be available soon... 

and also with Babar by Camelot Cottons
which will be available in November

  3. The color is Bermuda. I would pair it with Moda Low Volume.

  4. I guess bermuda! Love this pretty blue, it reminds me of being on vacation!

  5. Color guess: Bermuda. I love the nice people nice things fabric (well, really love all of them. Can just see a quilt for one of my granddaughters with this line). Rcoyle at olemiss dot edu

  6. Bermuda :)

    I love this color it is so soothing to me!

  7. So far I'm stumped on the name of the colour. Maybe that's because my brain should be sleeping in bed. But ... I do have a photo with that colour in it ... an ombre top ...

  8. I see this colour in our reflected Parliament buildings in our Canadian capital, Ottawa ...

  9. It is Bermuda!! Love love this colour :-)

  10. Sea tuna? I don't know that could have to do with a triangle, but it fits. I must go to bed and rest my brain.

  11. I just couldn't go to bed until I figured this one out. These clues were clever and trickier than the first 2, but I think I got it ... BERMUDA! Not Sea Tuna.

  12. The plain solid in this bedspread is a 'Bahama' colour

  13. I spot some Bahama blue on this pouch in the Cloud 9 fabric (the bottom left hand corner of the photo)

  15. Some bahama in the stripe on this block

  16. Some white spots on bermuda background in this Echino quilt.

  17. Bermuda! Oooo, I like this color a lot!
