Now that Summer has officially ended, it’s time to make way for the cooler weather of Autumn. I guess that’s perfect timing for our American Made Brand License Plate Quilt to head on one more road trip…..off to the quilter, that is!! Toni B., one of our resident Quilter Extraordinaires, rose to the occasion to design and piece the top of this amazing quilt comprised of 50 ‘license plate-inspired’ blocks. If you’ve been following us here on The Works, you may remember we kicked off the summer season with the AMB blog tour – a virtual road trip to all 50 States in the USA! We met some super friendly & talented blogger friends in each state who were so warm enough to share some of the local culture and wowed us with their craftiness in contributing a quilt block of their own design in the same format as a real license plate! One by one, our office was flooded with envelopes containing these clever quilt block designs. Finally, after all 50 blocks had arrived, Toni B. threw all of the blocks up on the design wall and when she arrived on a desired placement, she began to piece the top of this quilt. As all the license plate blocks used American Made Brand solid fabrics , Toni continued using these solids with the sashing and borders in the quilt top, too.
Here are a few more pics, with some close-up partial views of the quilt top, snapped in time before the quilt was packed up and sent back on the road again—off to be quilted! This quilt has definitely gotten some mileage, you could say ;)!!
Check back here at the Works soon to see the final progress of the AMB License Plate Quilt— quilted and bound for home!
