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!!

Tiny Quilt Challenge adMark your calendars– Call for entries begins in just 2 weeks- May 15th!  Head to this link to read more about how to enter The Tiny Quilt Challenge and best of luck :)!

One more AMB-related story— Today is May 1st, which means that the Hillside Houses QuiltALong at Pretty Little Quilts is beginning.  Follow Pretty Little Quilts on instagram or head to their blog to download blocks for the Hillside Houses Quilt.  Cristina of Pretty Little Quilts made another stunning example of American Made Brand solids in her nifty quilt design, Hillside Houses pictured below.

AMB Solids found in the Newest 100 Blocks by Quiltmaker’s

Quilt Maker's

Volume 10 of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks is hitting the news stands now.  Not only is American Made Brand solids featured in one of the blocks, but Clothworks’ very own Bonnie designed this stunning geometric-inspired block!  And it made the front cover!!

If you’ve been following us here on The Works, you may remember the talented & methodical, Bonnie, resident Clothworks ‘Pattern Queen’ and recently retired Clothworks employee.  Retirement is treating Bonnie well, and besides designing challenging quilt blocks, she’s been busy tending to her ‘jungle’ as she affectionately calls her garden and working on a quilt from The Row by Row Experience.

A trip to the local library to check out the ‘bible’ of quilt block patterns, ‘The Quilter’s Album of Patchwork Patterns’ by Jinny Beyer, inspired Bonnie to create her block design, ‘Four O’Clock Blossom’.  Jinny Beyer’s newest book has 4,050 block patterns in it (did we mention it weighs nearly 5 lbs??).  Bonnie knew it would be a challenge to ‘reinvent the wheel’ when it comes to coming up with an original quilt block, but I think her contribution to Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks is a slam dunk!  Bonnie was inspired by the 3D effects of many of the quilt block patterns in this book and wanted to create a unique block pattern that would be fairly simple for the experienced quilter to piece.  The American Made Brand Solids by Clothworks read well in this pattern and highlight the 3D effect of the design.

Head on over to Quiltmaker’s site to find out where to purchase Volume 10 or past editions of 100 Blocks, too!

And Happy Sewing!! 🙂
