Bella Parade '13 : Post # 4

Did you get yesterday's color???

I thought it was pretty simple!


I am totally having fun with the hints!!! Are you???

Moving on to the next color now...

Today's color is

And today's hints :
1. I'm a bird or an island or a melon or a wood!!!
2. The birds are named after an Island that derives its name from a Latin word  meaning of "Island of Dogs," due to its "vast multitudes of dogs of very large size" - I love wikipedia!
3. _ A _ A _ _

Now off to play with the color!!!

To create a monochromatic scheme, I combined it with Snow and Paper Bag

I love the earthy feel of it!

For the complementary scheme I chose to pair it with Sapphire!!! I love the elegance of the combination!!!

Don't they look a handsome pair???

And to make the creative combination, I went with 'purity' theme.
I paired it with White Bleached & Lilac

Oooh!! I love the serenity of this combination!!!

Now I'm off to pick some prints to go with it...

I would love to use it with
Adventures by Stephanie Marie Designs for RJR Fabrics

or with Ashbury Heights by Doohikey Designs for Riley Blake Designs 

 Maybe make an Autumn theme quilt with
Autumn Serenade for Hoffman Fabrics

A bright quilt with Technicolor  by Emily Herrick for Michael Miller Fabrics

or an elegant one with Lola by Dear Stella

To make kids quilts, I'll pair it with tow of my favorite licensed prints
Family Guy

or Simpsons
