A Fun Way to Travel

There's a new movement taking hold in the fabric world right now. Clothworks Textiles has started a "farm to fabric" movement to restore the proud tradition of American textiles and is producing a fabric entirely sourced and manufactured in the United States. Check out their gorgeous American Made Brand fabrics.
                                                   
 
I'm proud to be taking part in their upcoming promotional blog tour. Fifty bloggers from all 50 states were chosen to make quilt blocks and participate in a grand giveaway of American Made Brand fabrics. Just for you!

                                                  
 
I will be designing and making the quilt block for my state of Illinois, which will be included in a finished quilt made with blocks from all fifty states. What fun! But you'll have to wait until June for me to unveil  my block (Oh yeah, and actually make it, haha. I'd better get started.). The tour begins later this month on May 19. Read all about it here.
 
As each blogger reveals her state block, you'll have the opportunity to enter a giveaway to win a fat quarter bundle (8 fat quarters) when you visit her page. I hear there will be lots of other goodies and surprises in store for you too so you sure don't want to miss out. There'll be a total of  2 winners every day. I've had a peek at some of the state blocks and they're very creative. What a great way for you to show your American spirit, by making a block from all 50 states with American-made fabric. Jump on the bandwagon with us!
 
 
Fifty gorgeous colors.
                                               
This is going to be a fun way to travel this spring. I know many of the bloggers are cooking up some surprises for you along the way - with fun information about the states that will entice you to take a tour of America and visit them all on your own someday. So make sure you bookmark the AMB page so you can keep up with the tour and have a daily chance to win some great fabrics that will bring the proud American tradition right into your home. Almost as good as getting into that old station wagon again and driving around to see this glorious country of ours . . . .
