Modern Rainbow Blog Tour {Giucy Giuce and Shannon Brinkley}

Today on the Modern Rainbow blog tour, we are lucky enough to have 2 extremely talented artists - Giuseppe Ribaudo and Shannon Brinkley. I'm just showing a glimpse of there talent, so please hop over and explore their work; also they are each giving away a copy of the book, so be sure to enter.

(Note: Giuseppe will be posting later this evening.)


giucy giuce's


Giuseppe or G is a master at building color palettes and he just debuted his new logo, which seems to perfectly capture him. Every fabric pull the man puts together is just jaw dropping. He knows his color. G shares his creations and photos over on Instagram. I've snagged just one pic from his stream, but truly each photo is well shot and teaming with color inspiration.

Next up is Shannon Brinkley, who is also a C&T/Stash Books author. Her book, Scrappy Bits Applique, shows you how to create scrappy, collaged applique using your small scraps. Her book is filled with adorable creations using her scrappy bits technique.

Gosh, I just love this bear quilt coupled with the maple lear/ bear paw quilt block.

Shannon Brinkley's



I love the way Shannon uses the applique on top of a pieced background. It gives each quilt such a unique texture. Here's the bear at sunset. Same bear, but completely different look. I hadn't even noticed the bears are the same silhouette.

I hope you'll take the time to visit Shannon and G - it's truly worth the visit.

Modern Rainbow Blog Tour {Nicole from Modern Handcraft}

Today on the Modern Rainbow Blog Hop please visit Nicole of Modern Handcraft.

You've probably seen Nicole's work on the web. I love the way she uses simple shapes with sophisticated choice of color. Her photography is beautiful and her aesthetic is elegant. Here's one of her spectrum quilts at QuiltCon.


This is so good. By @modernhandcraft #quiltcon

Modern Rainbow Blog Tour {Beth Vassalo}

For today's stop on the Modern Rainbow blog tour I've convinced Beth of Plum and June to show off a pretty rainbow fabric pull. Beth is gearing up to promote her own book, along with co-author Janice Zeller Ryan, but Beth uses such unique fabrics in her projects that I just had to see if she would pull some fabrics for me.

As you can probably tell, I love to use rich and saturated colors, but Beth uses a softer color palette. I thought it would be fun to show you guys a different take on a rainbow. And Beth has done a wonderful job. Hop over to her post to see for yourself. Also enter to win a copy of Modern Rainbow.
