American Made Brand: Blog Tour and Giveaway




 Have you heard about AMB fabrics? It's a new line by Clothworks, which produces quality, solid quilting weight fabrics here in the U.S.A.  The cotton is grown in American soil and milled right here, a philosophy I can vibe with.  You can read more about the AMB story HERE and see all 50 great colors HERE!


I am incredibly honored and thrilled to have been selected by American Made Brand {AMB} to represent my home state of Michigan in their virtual blog tour of each of the United States, it's a road trip! No gas required. This challenge asked each contributor to design a license plate for their state, with the idea that each block will be incorporated  into a quilt, it's the ultimate national quilting bee.




My License Plate Block:


Far from perfect, and not quite as I first drafted, but I'm super pleased with it. The letters are paper pieced using Carol Doak's 300 Paper-Pieced Quilt Blocks book, and yes, I tediously reduced the  patterns  to 1 inch, leaving 1/4" seam allowance around the perimeter for sewing the pieces together. I'm just hoping nobody looks at the back of this block ;) For the state, I fused Heat and Bond to the back of the fabric, traced the state on the paper side, used really sharp snips to cut around it, then fused it to the background fabric with a steamy iron. To finish the state, I took a single strand of embroidery floss and made tiny blanket stitches around the edges. The block is 6.5" x 12.5" So if you're a glutton for  tiny piecing punishment, give it a shot.


My State, Michigan: 

Michigan is the Great Lakes State, it's the Mitten State, it's home to Motor City, the birthplace of Gibson Guitars, Bell's Beer, the Kalamazoo Promise and Motown music. Michigan is home the largest freshwater coast in the world, which lends  well to the fruit and wine producing industries. If you haven't traveled to Michigan, I recommend you do so. Please enjoy some of my favorite Instagram photos depicting some of the beauty of Northern Michigan. You can find me on Instagram at @cbhandmade


Old Mission Peninsula

Where the Platte River meets Lake Michigan,  Sleeping Bear National Park

Downright sweet example of a Michigan Made vintage 9 patch quilt.

Because you can't do Northern Michigan without fudge...

and you can't do the fair without a truck.







Enjoy the rest of the blog tour! You can find all of the participating designers HERE! 

Please leave a comment for chance to win a bundle of 8 fat quarters from American Made Brand fabrics! 

Giveaway open until Monday, June 9.

Those itty bitty letters are impressive!

Jill McCann said...

Love your work. And the pics of MI were fabulous!

Marti Taylor said...

Wow, your piecing MICHIGAN is awesome, and your 2 peninsulas are great, too. "If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you." Life is good here in da U.P. And AMB fabric looks great! Thanks

Joanne Huffman said...

Love your ode to Michigan.

cakegirl said...

You didn't mention my favorite Michigan product...peaches! Can't wait until they are available at the local farmers market. Thanks for the giveaway.

sophie said...

Thanks for the memories. I was born in Michigan, grew up and went to college there, then ... after moving away and living in Texas, New England, France and California, moved back again for a while. Michigan definitely is an interesting and beautiful place. Now I live in New Mexico, where those Pure Michigan ads play in regular rotation and make me a little homesick.

Congrats on your Michigan "plate."

Linda said...

Siobhán said...

I'd love to visit more of Michigan! I have only been in the lower, more industrial parts of the state when visiting family in Illinois. Beautiful photos!

Amy said...

I have been to Michigan twice. Once on a family reunion to Interlochen which wad fun and gorgeous. The other to Escanaba on the UP. Also beautiful... and that was in November (1983...). I'd love to go back.

Allison said...

Beautiful pictures! I've never been to Michigan but after seeing the photos, I'll plan a trip.

Stoney said...

Well, howdy, neighbor. I've spent my entire life next door in Wisconsin and have traveled through Michigan often. After looking at your license plate, I spent some time admiring the quilts on your blog. I'm impressed.

Some day my husband and I hope to visit the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The Michigan photos you shared are lovely!

Northern Michigan reminds me so much of my childhood home in western NY state - same beautiful fall foliage and snowy winter roads.

patty a. said...

I have been to Michigan lots of times since I am next door in Ohio. The Ford Museum, Kalamazoo, Detroit to see the Tigers play in the old stadium before they tore it down at the request of my son, and to the dunes.

cityquilter grace said...

michigan photos are reminiscent of maine....4 distinct seasons, water, snow, foliage....beautiful!

We'll be traveling to Michigan for a wedding later this year, thanks for the tips on things to do.

Jules said...

I love Michigan! But I can say that because I've never had to live through a winter! Thanks for the chance!

Joanne Hawks said...

The snow pictures spoke to me. I've always been a fan of winter, and now I find myself living in FL the past two years. Go figure!

Great pictures! Thanks for the tour.

Sandra said...

The AMB Blog Tour has been a lot of fun with the different license plates available as well as the history involved with each State. This takes a lot of time to do and I just want to thank you for being a part of the AMB Blog Tour and giving all of us the chance to win that awesome bundle of fabric. I am from Sonora, CA, the golden State as well as being the foothills. We are 10 minutes away from Jamestown, where the famous No. 3 engine of the Sierra Railroad is. This was used in many movies. Do you remember Petticoat Junction?

Mary Marcotte said...

After seeing some of the interesting blocks on the tour I have to question whether I can recreate them all. Your itty bitty letters are incredible! I do love them but I may not want to make them. I hope to visit one summer. Louisiana people don't do snow very well.

Kelly Wilson said...

Thanks for the state tour! I've been to Kalamazoo and the Ann Arbor area but not much else as we have to drive through Chicago to get there from WI. Thanks for the opportunity! notwendy gmail

I'm impressed with your tiny pieces on your plate!

banjo795 said...

My son-in-law is from Grand Rapids, and he and his parents love to sail the lake. I went out with them once and got very seasick :-< I have a friend who retired to the UP. I couldn't believe it; most people go SOUTH to retire! But she and her DH love fishing and the laid back lifestyle, so it fits them perfectly.

Missy Endres said...

I love your plate and all of the pictures! I haven't been to Michigan yet, but am hoping to change that this summer!

Tinliz said...

I have many fond memories of visiting your beautiful state. My most fun summer was spent being a counselor at a Girl Scout camp after my first year of college.

LindaS said...

Great pics of your state. I have been along the southern edge of Michigan, but haven;t made it further north yet, although it is on my list.

Marianne said...

I'd like to visit the Upper Peninsula in the summer some day. That's an impressive block with those small letters!

Joanna said...

I learned you are The Mitten state because of the shape of the lower peninsula. I thought that was interesting. Love how you made the letters on your block.

graysongal said...

I've enjoyed visits to the Detroit area but would love to see the UP and all the lakes. What impressive little letters you have made!

Iowa here - love you beautiful quilts on some of your earlier posts - Michigan is beautiful

I have been through the UP many times, but only once or twice to lower Michigan. I remember driving north on the interstate and seeing elk along the road. What a great sight!

Barb said...

There was a time in my life when Gibson guitars and Bell's were a common site on the weekend. Now that I'm older I'm more likely to want a piece of that fudge LOL

Sandi Griepenstroh said...

Your little paper pieced state name is very cool! My husband and I are planning a trip to Upper Michigan in the first week of September. I am really looking forward to it. Be sure to check out my block on June 12, renaissanceSandi.blogspot.com
