Solids and More

Good morning! Today I have some more Bella solids talk–I’ve been working on more Moda Friendship blocks using the Bella solids, and it’s been a lot of fun! 

In fact, I’ve been having so much fun making these blocks, I’m going to have a solids quilt-along parade on my blog, A Quilting Life…you can find out all about it by reading  here.


For today’s post, I’ve also enlisted the help of Pat Sloan to talk about some of her favorite Bella solids (and especially those Bellas that will go well with her upcoming collection, Bits & Bobbins).

Pat is using Bella White 9900 11 which works perfectly with her collection and contrasts a bit with the white in her fabrics. Pat mentioned that, “My favorite pairing is with the grey’s… I want to make a top with this!”

Pat also said that her next favorite is “…the sweet shade of Buttercup (51). The yellow matches so well with the bits of yellow in so many of my prints.”

Pat continues, “Then I found Seafoam (191) looks amazing with the reds, which are a bit of a tomato red!
I have to say “thank you” to Pat who provided me with the photos and her thoughts on these terrific Bella solids combinations today.

Every once in a while I find a Bella solid that coordinates amazingly well with something else, and sometimes it happens quite by accident as with the fabrics below. I was taking pictures for a couple of different posts, and one of the prints from Oink a Doodle Moo ended up next to one of my Moda Friendship blocks…both of these green Bellas, 9900 28 (Grass), and 9900 75 (Lime) coordinate perfectly with the print from Oink a Doodle Moo! I’ll definitely be binding my quilt with one of these two Bellas! I love it when this happens.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
