American Made Brand is pleased to present the results of the Tiny Quilt Challenge in a special exhibit that debuted last week at the Road to California Quilt Show! Thirty-nine quilts made exclusively with American Made Brand solid fabric were shown at this exhibit, including the 12 prize winners of the 4 categories: Pieced, Quilting, Applique, and Junior Division. Below are some pictures of the exhibit.
The amount of detail, artistry, and precision put into these tiny crafted quilts is quite amazing! Keep in mind, these pieces could not exceed 15″ square.
It was a pleasure viewing these quilts up close, and even better, meeting some of the quilters who had their work on display! The Grand Prize winner of the Tiny Quilt Challenge won a trip to attend the Road to California show !
Marla Whalen, pictured here with her Grand Prize winning quilt, Arrow Star, also won 1st place in the Pieced Division. Marla flew all the way from her hometown of Memphis, Tennessee to enjoy her trip to the Road to California quilt show. We treated Marla to dinner at the Sycamore Inn on the famed Route 66, and what a hoot it was getting to know her! Like many quilters, she comes from an eclectic background. A mother to 2 spoiled rescue dogs, a pharmacist by trade; when she’s not working or quilting, she enjoys reading detective novels and spotting local celebrity rock stars at the town pharmacy.
