Modern Rainbow Blog Tour



I'm excited to share with you this new book written by Rebecca Bryan from Bryan House Quilts (scroll to the bottom of this post for a chance to win your own copy.)  I've always admired Becca's style and this book definitely does not disappoint! The quilts are seriously gorgeous and the book includes valuable information for choosing fabrics and techniques to make your own! Here are some of my favorites:




I've been loving all of the projects that have been made for the book's blog hop. You can see the full list at the bottom of this post. I, unfortunately, haven't made a project from the book yet but that doesn't mean I haven't been thinking about which fabric I would use. If you are familiar with my blog, you probably know that I don't use too many bold colors but I looked through my fabric stash to come up with my own version of a modern rainbow palette.

  4. Can't wait to see a project from you in the more subtle tones....however I'm really a "bold" color person.

    ReplyDelete
  5. While your color choices for your quilt may not be quite as bold as the others, it will be very pretty. And modern is what you make it.

  21. I think recreating the rainbow with your softer and more muted color palette is a really fresh take on it, Beth. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I generally go for bright saturated colors but I really love your muted rainbow fabric pull.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Your rainbow color palette is just SO you and it's delicious. It reminds me of rainbow sherbert: vibrant but muted. All these rainbow inspirations make me want to get back to my rainbow quilt that I put in timeout a few months ago.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I like the subdued rainbow color palette you chose. Those would be great for a baby version of the quilts as well.
