Made In America Giveaway


Road Trip!

There is exciting news in the quilting world.  As many of you know almost all of our quilting fabric is manufactured overseas.  Now, there is a company called American Made Brands, that is manufacturing cotton quilting fabric right here in the United States.  They are even growing the cotton here.  I am so happy to be able to help share this news.  

To promote this line of solid cotton fabric and spread the news, AMB came up with the idea of celebrating America with a road trip from sate to state.  They have invited one blogger from each state to make a block in the shape of a license plate that is representative of their state. 
 And guess who is Miss Pennsylvania?

The road trip will visit the blog representing each state in the order  in which it joined the Union (for the most part) over the course of 25 days.  If you know your history, you would know that Pennsylvania was the second state. (Delaware is the first state and you can see it on the sign on the highway whenever you cross the state line.)
This is a bit scary to be kicking off the tour, but here we go.

Welcome to PENNSYLVANIA!
I used all American Made Brand fabric to create it.  My design inspiration was all of the history that started right here - from the house where Betsy Ross made our first flag to the Liberty Bell. The solid fabrics were just perfect for this design.  If you want to download the pattern, click HERE.  If you want to read more about how I made the curved strips, click HERE.

I shared my license plate at my quilt guild last week, and several people thought they would make a quilt using the patterns for the license plates of each state that they have visited. 
 Sounds very kid friendly.

Each blogger will be giving away a fat quarter bundle of American Made Brand fabric.
To follow the road trip, visit AMB's blog.
There is the entire list of the states, the bloggers with their links and the dates.
 Make sure you read the post to determine how to enter.

I live near Philadelphia and it is definitely an eating town.   There is always a battle as to who has the best cheesesteak and you can find hot pretzels everywhere, including the ubiquitous convenience store that started here, called WAWA. Tastykakes makes a big range of favorite treats that we love.

So in addition to giving away a fabric bundle from AMB that will include 8 fat quarters, I will choose a second winner to receive  a box of Tastykakes and a stack of 5" squares of solids. 

 For both giveaways, you must have a U.S.mailing address
 and make sure you leave an email address where I can contact you.
I will choose the winner on Wednesday, May 21 at 9:00 PM est.
Comments are closed.
The winner of the 8 fat quarters is Carmen N.
The winner of the Tastykakes annd the 6 " squares is suz.
Congratulations!
Don't forget to check out the other very cool license plates that the other bloggers/designers have created.

ENJOY THE TRIP!
and thanks for stopping by.

  75. Cheryl, Exclude me from the giveaway, but I just had to tell you I LOVE your Pennsylvania block! Nice job! Your giveaway is very fun, too! Just back from Quilt Market in Pittsburgh and we missed your TastyKakes. We did enjoy some WONDERFUL PA hospitality from the airport, cab drivers, people on the streets, in the hotels, restaurants and convention center. Would love to come back when I have time to play. : )

    ReplyDelete
  76. I visited Philadelphia and Lancaster county. Saw lots of gorgeous quilts and fabric. I didn't sew, then, so I only admired them. Ate lots of cheesesteak and discovered those Tastykakes. Would love to visit again.

  162. I like the idea of having American made fabric available to us, and I like the idea of making a quilt from all the license plate designs.
    Years ago, when my sister (from NJ where Tastycakes are also popular) went to college in the midwest, she asked for care packages containing Tastycakes.
