Calling all animal-lovers, sewists, and crafters, alike! The Pet Postcard Project is seeking donations for pet-themed postcards made with fabric to be sold at the upcoming International Quilt Festival in Chicago, April 7th-9th, 2016. Postcards will be sold for $20 at Festival, with all proceeds going to PAWS Chicago, the largest no-kill animal rescue in the Midwest.
Had to share this wonderful American Made Brand show and tell with everyone! Autumn, one of our Junior Division winners in last year’s Tiny Quilt Challenge, has just placed 2nd at a show at Quiltcon with this gorgeous quilt here! Autumn was the 3rd place winner in the Junior Division of the Tiny Quilt Challenge with her Wacky Spool quilt made from American Made Brand. We rewarded her with fat quarters of American Made Brand in 31 gorgeous colors. From there, Autumn made this stunning quilt pictured here, mixing in some other printed fabrics with her AMB winnings. Some might call it luck, but I’d say this young quilter is off to a strong start with her quilting talents! A big round of applause to Autumn for winning 2nd place with this fantastic quilt!!! Congratulations and keep up the wonderful work!
Our local news affiliate here in Seattle, WA shared this wonderful story about a lovely group of quilters donating their time & talent on a special charity quilt project. The Friday Friends Quilters group (part of the local Tri-City Quilters’ Guild) are making charity quilts for an injured firefighter and families of the fallen firefighters who bravely battled the forest fires last summer in Twisp, WA. Great to see American Made Brand used in these very special quilts. Read more about this heart-warming story and view pictures here at the KOMO news website.

Zoe Zebra not only ‘pops’ with three-dimensional applique features (the zebra’s ears & flower petals), but the clear, bright colors of American Made Brand solid cottons add a little more punch to the quilt, too!
Head to your local quilt shop or favorite newsstand to pick up the newest issue of Quiltmaker magazine- March/April 2016 edition and be sure to pick up some American Made Brand solid cottons to make Zoe Zebra. What a sweet quilt to make for a gift for a mother-to-be!
