AMB License Plate Quilt…..Home at Last!



The American Made Brand License Plate Quilt has finally made it home…all in one piece!  Kudos to the prompt turn-around and lovely quilting job by longarm quilter, Loretta Orsborn, of Orsborn Specialty Quilting.  Loretta really had her hands full when it came to quilting this quilt!!  With 50 blocks that are sized as an actual license plate, plus sashing and borders– it all amounted to one seriously large quilt!!  Maybe almost as big as Texas 🙂

Here are my pictorial attempts in trying to capture this American Beauty, all made using American Made Brand solid fabrics.


Let’s give a round of applause to all who lent a hand in making this quilt happen!  Thanks to Candice, our Creative Director and Marketing Whiz, who organized the AMB blog tour.  A Standing ‘O’ goes out to all 50 of our Blogger friends, or as I like to call them, our State Ambassadors, who provided their talent and sewing ingenuity to create these distinctive state license plate blocks.  Hats off to Toni B, our Sample Room Extraordinaire and Quilting Queen who designed the layout and pieced the quilt top, and kudos to Loretta Orsborn, the quilter, who completed this quilt!!!  Bravo!!!
