American Made Brand fabrics will be making the quilt exhibit circuit, featured in some gorgeous quilts at a few quilt festivals this Autumn! Quilts made of American Made Brand solids featured in the Farm to Fabric Challenge from 2014, as well as the lovely AMB License Plate Quilt (as shown above) will be shown in 3 upcoming quilt festivals. Fill up your gas tanks, rev up your engines, and take a road trip to these quilt festivals to view the American Made Brand Farm to Fabric Challenge Quilt Exhibit. Here’s your chance to see these absolutely fantastic quilts in person:
Last year in 2014, in conjunction with the debut of American Made Brand solid fabrics, we hosted the Farm to Fabric Quilt Challenge where entrants were asked to design & make their quilts using the beautiful assortment of American Made Brand solid fabrics and answer the theme question: What does it mean to you, your family or your community to bring fabric production back to America to use in your American made quilts? Several applicants submitted quilts, but through the juried contest, a handful of the best quilts were selected to be exhibited. Clothworks is excited to continue touring the Farm to Fabric Challenge Quilt exhibit so that you may have a chance to admire these amazing quilts made from AMB!
You might also remember from last year here on the Works, we took you on the AMB Blog Tour– a virtual road trip visiting all 50 States in the USA, meeting a new blogger per state, and viewing their contribution to the AMB License Plate Quilt. This quilt will also be featured along with the Farm to Fabric Challenge Quilt Exhibit at the upcoming quilt festivals mentioned above.
The Farm to Fabric Challenge Exhibit along with the AMB License Plate Quilt was shown at The World Quilt Show in Manchester, NH from August 13-15. Although we missed it, you can read the account of it from our blogger friend, Victoria of Park Hill Farm, also known as ‘Ms. New Hampshire’ on the AMB Road Trip Blog Tour.
And just a reminder…..
It’s not too late to enter into this year’s American Made Brand Quilt Challenge, The Tiny Quilt Challenge for 2015. We are still taking entries through September 15, 2015. This year we’re extremely excited to offer a ‘Junior’ category for entrants below the age of 18!
