Here are some examples of Berrylicious in action. I must say it was pretty hard to find a real close match around blogland. It seems like there aren't a lot of fabrics that are a right match for berrylicious! I'd take that as a good thing - adding a new color! The ones I pulled here are pretty close matches. I love how this color amps up the volume of these projects. I love the combination with other bright colors. Check out Heather's quilt blocks in picture 1 - the bright fabrics pair so well with that berrylicious! Also my favorite Farmer's Wife QAL quilt - Donna used a great pink as sashing in image two! Other favorites for me, the pillows by Jackie in photo 8, and a quilt top in photo 9 by "alixbroadfoot" on flickr.

To pair with our berrylicious today I've got a bundle of magenta and blue with just a touch of yellow. I actually have several of these fabrics on hand here, and they go really nicely together. I've picked out a few of the Sketch Screen Textures (lipstick, citron, and black and white) as well as a couple prints from the Modernology fabric line by Pat Bravo. They're really vibrant and fun fabrics and that pop of yellow up there really draws out the fun factor!

For my FMQ sample today I was hugely inspired by a one of our pinterest submissions for the bella parade - quilted by Angela -- and I'm really glad that I gave it a try! I'm not exactly sure what we'd call these flowers - a mum or a peony? Maybe Angela will speak up on that -- but I started out with three or four little petals in the middle and kept making my way around until each one was big enough. The texture on these are great and even on the parts where I thought I was "losing it" it doesn't show in the finished product! Give this a try, it's worth it! I'd love to see this quilting on a purse or bag too!
