Bella Parade 2012

I'm guest posting today as part of the 2012 Bella Solids Parade over at 13 Woodhouse Road.  Me! Guest posting! How cool is that!

The series focuses on the use of Bella Solids fabric in your creative projects. And since the Bella Solids range come in a massive amount of gorgeous colours there's sure to be one or two or six to compliment anything your creative brain chooses to dream up. 

And so without further ado, the solids I'm going to share with you today are: 

I'm going to attempt to match these up with some fabrics from my stash to show you just how easy it is to use solids in your projects for maximum impact. And since I'm known for my questionable ability to chuck just about anything together fabric wise,  prepare to have your eyeballs dazzled. Go and get your sunglasses now. 

Boysenberry Bella Solid Paired with some randomness from my stash. In my humble opinion a colour like this doesn't need a lot going on to highlight the solid. 

Strawberry Bella solid with selected fabrics from the Strawberry Fields range from Moda. Beautiful!

Platinum Bella Solid with Bunny Hill's Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle. It doesn't get any more perfect than this so why reinvent the wheel? 

Berrylicious Bella solid with Amy Butler's Soul Blossoms. This would be one striking quilt ! 

So there you have it. My picks for the Bella Solids Parade.

Come back tomorrow to have a gander at my first ever tutorial (eeeeek!)for a project you can make in a day using these beautiful fabrics. It may turn out to be a three sided quilt or a bag with disappearing-never-to-be-seen-again handles but whatever it is -it'll be  something fun. And easy. I promise. I don't do hard. I'm way too lazy.

Favourite Things Friday will be posted tonight...and I'm super excited about my planned post for today. It's had me skipping round all week in anticipation!

Very excited for you too! Looks like you had a good time rummaging about for yummy prints to go with those solids. I'll stay tuned for sure!

I bet you had a fabulous time going through your stash to find all those fabrics to match. You did a great job too, they look fantastic. I particularly love the Strawberry with the Strawberry Fields.
Looking forward to your tutorial, I wonder whether it has a zip in it, lol!

Enjoy making.

I will be sitting on the couch anticipating your tutorial! Oh, the Bunny Hill match up - lovely! I never thought of looking through Moda's solids. I always turn to Kona. I must rethink my methodology!

You've certainly added colour to my Friday evening. In fact Boysebberry matches the colour of my evening's beverage. Looking forward to your tutorial!

Mmm, those are some luscious berry and melon solids!

Elizabeth said...

Wow! Love those combinations! I can't wait to see your tutorial!

Well look at you, girlfriend! A guest post? They did the perfect choice by picking you! And I LOVE your choices, but I do have a favorite. The one you did with Amy Butler's Soul Blossoms is GORGEOUS. It makes me want to go buy some of this right now! Wait...was that the purpose of this post? Holy worked...I'm off to shop......

Love your picks to go with each of the solids. I think the berrylicious combo was my favourite.
