Made in the U.S.A.

How does it happen that whenever I leave home, something fun and exciting happens? Maybe I should go away more often! While in Paducah, I received an email inviting me to participate in a blog hop, and I'm tickled to be asked. This blog hop, or rather - blog tour - is all about American Made Brand.

Have you heard of American Made Brand (AMB) and its fabric line? A nice article, in the May issue of American Quilter is the first place I heard about the fabrics.

In case you're not familiar, AMB is a new solids fabric collection that's grown and milled here in the US. I, for one, am happy to know that we have an opportunity to purchase fabric that supports a 100% made-in-the-USA company.

As a blogger representating my state of Florida, I've been invited to use AMB solids in a block design of my creation. My block will be offered as a free pattern and will take it's shape from this picture.

Every blogger - all 50 of us, representing all 50 states - will host giveaways, beginning next Monday, May 19.

So start visiting other bloggers who are participating, two each day, Monday through Friday.

Day One is Monday, May 19. Here's where to go:

Then, please come back to my blog on the June 5 tour day. My giveaway will be open to all quilters. That means international too!

Have fun! Linda


  1. What fun! I bought a couple yards of this fabric when I first heard about it, thinking it might be good for whole cloth hand quilting. I've just started a simple design and love how easily it hand quilts!

  2. Sounds like fun! Can't wait to see what you do.:-) Must go and check oust the others.

  3. Neat idea and I look forward to seeing the creativity of those participating. I think your talent is being recognized and you will be invited to many more such event.

  4. How fun will that be!! Go on vacation more often, LOL!!

  5. What a privilege would love to handle these new cottons. Looking forward to seeing your block

  6. That's really exciting Linda. Can't wait to see what you make.

  7. I'm looking forward to this, Linda!

  8. Hi Linda - great to see an American Made product especially for us quilters! Love your work and look forward to seeing what you do with these fabrics
