American Made Fabric (and Challenge)

Standard

http://americanmadebrand.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/amb_circle-logo.jpg?w=238I can’t remember a time when a new quilt fabric line created such a buzz in the industry. Even though I’ve taken a long break from blogging (which will be covered in the next post), I wanted to share this with y’all.

We have a new American-made line of solid fabrics. The fabrics are grown in the U.S., as well as spun and manufactured here. Yup. The whole process. You can read their story here. I first heard about this line of fabrics from a quilter friend. Now, the buzz is everywhere and I just learned that our local quilt shop has purchased the entire line of fabrics. (Way to go, Pieceful Quilting.)

Even more fun is the fact they’ve created a Farm to Fabric Challenge. Registration must be completed by August 15th.

As someone whose been recently challenged to find time for quilting, I know that challenges are a great way to get inspired to start — and actually finish — a project. I’m pretty sure I’m going to enter myself and I’d love for some of my readers to enter too.
