Fun New Projects with AMB Solids!

100 Blocks coverThe newest edition of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks – Summer 2015, Vol.11 has 2 blocks made with American Made Brand solid fabric by Clothworks gracing its cover!!  Head to your LQS(local quilt shop) or other retailer of quilting magazines to pick up a copy and learn how to make these dazzling quilt blocks!

You may remember last summer during the AMB Roadtrip License Plate Blog Hop, our very own Ms. Texas— Emily Breclaw of The Caffeinated Quilter created this nifty block called ‘Hexadaisy’.  I’m loving her choice of AMB solid colors here– the vibrant daisy petals on top of the tonal lime green pieced background.  Quite a clever design and one for the ‘hexie-obsessed’ piece quilter!

Block 1037One more quilt block pieced with AMB solids was also spotted in this new edition of Quiltmakers 100 Blocks, entitled ‘Crocus and Daffodil’.  I’m really into this complimentary-inspired color combination with shades of purples and greens playing off of each contrasted by pale yellow and grey!  Very fresh!

block #1063As you can tell from these quilt blocks, the vibrant range of colors offered in the AMB solid collection make it very easy to create eye-catching designs with skilled use of color theory.  Solids never looked so interesting when you use American Made Brand fabric for piecing!

Also spotted in this edition of Quiltmakers 100 Blocks is an ad for the upcoming Tiny Quilt Challenge using American Made Brand solid fabric!!
