American Made Brand Giveaway


This is pretty exciting! Clothworks has come out with a line of solid fabrics completely made in the USA! It's called American Made Brand.



They have sent me a stack to giveaway to one of my friends who read my blog. Maybe you?




There are 8 fat quarters in the stack. Please leave me a comment and tell me what is your favorite state and why. I will pull a name on Friday May 22. If you are a no reply commenter please leave your email address or I have no way of contacting you and will have to pull another name.
Good Luck!

  3. With 50 to choose from this is a tough call and my favorite probably could change depending on the day. I love Massachusetts because of the history, architecture and beaches. Also have a soft spot for Vermont...

  7. I have many states that I love! My very favorite would be NY, because it is the state that feels most like "home." I love the Catskill Mountains, I love the Syracuse/Rochester area to the north, I love the Binghampton area in the southwest, and I love Brooklyn and Manhattan.

  10. For me it's simple…Michigan. Beautiful beaches, water, forests….and I can show you where I'm from by pointing at the palm of my hand!

  11. Illinois is my favorite state because my eldest son is living and working there. I visited him and loved that place, especially Oak Park and of course the lake.

  12. My adopted state of Pennsylvania is my favorite state. We have everything here, Philadelphia has incredible history including the very first zoo and some of the top restaurants in the country, Lancaster county is a short drive with Amish buggies and beautiful rolling farms and hills. As you drive through the state there are gorgeous majestic mountains and if it's Fall, the changing leaves are breathtaking. We have Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Liberty Bell, the Betsy Ross House and the solemn Gettysburg Battlefield made so famous by President Lincoln in the Gettysburg Address. I love it here!

  13. Can I say my own state? I love Washington. It's so diverse with the ocean beaches, the very green side of the state, the gorgeous rock formations on the east side of the state, the fabulous Columbia river, all the beautiful mountains with the snow caps, the rolling wheat fields, the miles of apple orchards, the slow moving rural communities and then there's the sophisticated Seattle-ites! LOVE living here! Great that you got chosen to have this wonderful giveaway.:)

  14. I'd have to say that Oregon is my favorite state. There's so many things to do, you have to pick and choose between going to a music festival or hiking or exploring one of the many farmer's markets. ;) Thank you for hosting a give-away!

  15. My favorite state is Maine because it's one of the few I've never been to, and the summers look so beautiful to this quilter in hot south Texas!

    ReplyDelete
  16. In the 32 years that I have been married, I have lived in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Arizona and California. But I will have to say that my favorite state is Hawaii .............. many beautiful beaches there and wonderful people ..... no rush, rush, hurry to get things done attitudes .... nice and laid back ....

  17. Is this an international giveaway? Most of the others in this tour are not shipping internationally! Anyway I visited the US in 1980 and I loved everything, but Colorado was pretty special!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love Florida. That is why I moved here, lots of things to do all around the year

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love Maine, not only because it is beautiful but also because of the wonderful, friendly, helpful people here. We just did a Shop Hop and visited 39 shops all over the state and each was so different with such helpful clerks/owners.

  20. My favorite state is where I live: Virginia. We experience all 4 seasons, but winter is generally mild where I live. Just enough snow to keep it interesting. Seven of my siblings and their families live in VA, so I've seen most of the state. We have beaches, mountains, farms and cities. Great colleges too.

  21. Georgia because I live here, thanks for the chance

  22. I feel like I should be loyal to Minnesota (where I grew up) or South Dakota (where I was born) or Pennsylvania (where I live now), but actually my favorite state is Maine. I always, always, always wanted to go there growing up (possibly from reading Blueberries for Sal!), and now that we are close enough, we go there almost every year for summer vacation, and have the most fantastic time! It's like Minnesota with all of the lakes and pines, but by the sea too. There is a beach we go to there with sand that floats and sparkles golden in the water. sarah@forrussia.org

  23. California because as of right now, it's the only state I've ever lived in. Just in case my profile is set up wrong: whikerybasket (at) gmail (dot) com.

  24. Was going to say AZ since we just got back from Sedona such beautiful area but instead must say MI the state I was raised in the land of lakes so many beautiful lakes to swim and ski and boat in

    ReplyDelete
  25. Can Aussies join in? If I had to pick a state I'd say the state you live so we could go to the nearby Amish strawberry farm together.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love New York State because that's where I grew up. I love the vineyards and apple orchards, the many finger lakes and the mountains. Truth be told, I also miss those thunderstorms too!

    ReplyDelete
  27. My heart is in Wisconsin, because I adopted this wonderful state 35 years ago as my home. But when wanting paradise, I travel to Maine!

  31. I love so many states, it's hard to choose just one! I grew up in Vermont and went on summer vacations to Maine, love both of those states. I also love Hawaii for it's warm weather and beautiful beaches. But if I have to choose a favorite...it's Colorado. The Rockies are just so beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  32. New York - it has all 4 seasons, ocean, big city, small towns, mountains, state parks.

  33. I've enjoyed every state I've visited, but I'm choosing my home state, Missouri. I love the rows and rows of corn and beans, distinct seasons, the lake area and fun cities.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Good for Clothworks and USA made.
    I live in Missouri and have visited Az. couple of times. Loved it because my Mo. allergy's didn't bother me and I could BREATH.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love Texas!! I first visited Texas when I was 12 years old and told my mom "I'm going to live in Texas one day"....flash ahead 11 years and where do I end up...yep...you guessed it..Texas!! Been here 28 years and never gonna leave.

    I love the weather (Hot Hot Hot!!) and there is just so much to do in the area I live (Dallas/Fort Worth Area). Plus we have at least 30 quilt shops within 1 1/2 hours where i live. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

  37. North Carolina: has both the mountains and the beach; Washington: just cool, Alaska: the final frontier; Hawaii: gorgeous tropics

  38. Washington is one of my favorite states. Your solid colors remind me of my daughter' wedding at a park on the Puget Sound in 2011. Her table flowers were hydrangeas. Bridesmaids gowns were sage green. The Pacific Northwest setting with a view of the Olympics and Mt Rainier was truly a masterpiece.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  58. It's hard to pick a favorite–I tend to enjoy the best wherever I am has to offer and I have lived a bit of a tumbleweed life. I choose New Mexico, the place I am now. I do miss the ocean (or the next best thing--the great lakes) at time, but I still choose to live here.
