Have you noticed the above button on my sidebar? You guys - this is BIG! Finally we have a beautiful selection of cotton quilting solids made right here in the USA! The American Made Brand Blog Tour will run from May 19 until June 20.
One quilter has been selected from every single state to make a 6" x 12" license plate block that represents their state. Yes, I'm representing ALABAMA! Each of us will reveal our block design on our designated day and host a giveaway of AMB fat quarters - how fun is that!
I've had an opportunity to see a few of the blocks, some in progress, some completed. Oh, you're going to love the designs! All the blocks will be sent to AMB and they will make a fabulous quilt with them - it will be on display in Houston this Fall. I, for one, can't wait to see it!
All the designs for the blocks will be available, so you can make your own USA quilt, too!
For more information on this, click on the AMB button on the sidebar!
(FYI, I just finished my block tonight. It's the secret appliqué project I've been working on.)
Guess what! I finished quilting this one today! Love the texture!
A backyard amaryllis! We have all sorts of things blooming at the moment. Lovely time of year.
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
