American Made Brand Blog Tour

If  seeing “Made in the USA” makes you happy, you’re going to love this.

There’s an awesome company called American Made Brand making fabrics that are made from:

  • 100% American grown premium upland cotton
  • 100% American spun yarn
  • 100%American woven cloth
  • 100% American dyed fabric

Like American Made Brand says, “Not just made here.  Grown here.”  Love it!

They’re hosting a 50 state blog tour showcasing American blogging quilters (quilting bloggers?) with each blogger creating a pieced license plate to represent their state in any way they choose.  These imaginative re-invented license plates will be sewn together to make up a colorful quilt of license plates from all 50 states.

Each blogger will also be giving away eight different fat quarters from American Made Brand, so be sure to visit them all!  Did I mention there are 50 colors in their palate?  Love that.  The blog tour will start May 19th, so be sure to check back at American Made Brand’s site daily to click through to the next stop.

And did I mention that I was asked to represent West Virginia?  I’m kind of stunned by that, and completely honored and maybe even a little nervous.  (I’ll be posting my contribution on June 11th.)

I mean, these are gorgeous fabrics, and buying them brings business to American farmers, spinners and weavers, not to mention our beloved quilt shop owners.

As quilters, we love to have meaning and purpose behind the things we sew.  The love we stitch in just goes a few layers deeper with this fabric, doesn’t it?

    • Aww, thank you, Erin! :) I still feel new to sewing and quilting, so this was a surprise to me. I’ve seen previews of a few of the other license plates and they are just amazing! Can’t wait to see how they all come together!

    • Thank you! :) It’s been a fun creative exercise, for sure. It was harder for me to come up with a 6″x12″ idea than for an entire quilt. It made me really think about the use of space.

    • Hi, Jeanie! They are beautiful fabrics, aren’t they? Working with them and learning more about American Made Brand has been a lot of fun, heartwarming, actually. :)
