The deadline to enter the Tiny Quilt Challenge sponsored by American Made Brand is quickly approaching! With just about a month to go, entries will be accepted no later than Tuesday September 15, 2015. As the name of this year’s quilt contest suggests, the Tiny Quilt Challenge will accept finished quilt entries made from AMB Solid Fabric, sized at 15″ x 15″ or less.
Last year’s AMB-sponsored quilt contest, The Farm to Fabric Challenge, was all about paying tribute to bringing fabric production back to the USA. From the cotton grown in the fields to the fabric woven, dyed, and finished in the textile mills, we asked contestants to ponder the importance of bringing this booming industry back to U.S. shores. It was the perfect theme to help debut the release of American Made Brand fabrics, a division of Clothworks.
For this year’s contest, The Tiny Quilt Challenge, it’s all about down-sizing! Have you ever just wanted to live a simpler, pared down way of life? See how much fun it can be to think about what you can create in the box (finished dimensions of 15″ x 15″ or less) with AMB solids! Maybe you’ve even gathered enough scraps of American Made Brand solid fabric left over from previous projects and want to reduce your fabric stash?!! The Tiny Quilt Challenge may have a smaller format to work with, but the possibilities of what to create are limitless! Act quickly, as before you know it the September 15th deadline will be here!
