American Made Brand Blog Hop

The GIVE AWAY is now CLOSED thanks to all who played along! The winners have been announced and the pattern is available HERE.
 
 
 


Welcome to today's stop on the American Made Brand Blog Hop. I'm so excited to be a part of this fun 50 state blog tour. As a long time resident of Georgia, I was thrilled to be asked to make a block for my state. I am also a huge fan of history, especially quilting history, so I started my research immediately. I found so much information but I kept coming back to my favorite quilt from Georgia made by a former slave named  Harriet Powers in 1886.

File:PowersBibleQuilt 1886.jpg
 
I love this quilt for so many reasons, and I knew I could borrow her "style" of freeform applique that looks as if it is tossed onto the quilt. I chose her sashing and cornerstone style as well. Once I added the sashing and cornerstones I didn't have much space left to work with. So I quickly realized I would have to layer my elements.
 
 
 
 
I chose 7 colors ( light khaki #11, dark brown #16, taupe #62, dark taupe #63, orange #36, dark orange # 37, and olive #24 ) that I thought would look nice together and give a cheerful look to the block. Then I drew the peach and the letters on paper. I fused the fabrics to a light fusible and cut out the shapes.
 
 
 
 
I placed the shapes on the block in several different arrangements until I was happy with it.
 
 
Then I fused the shapes in place and stitched around the edges in a very tiny zig zag with matching threads. I wanted it to look a bit primitive but still be durable.
 
 
 
These fabrics were fantastic to work with and the colors are amazing. I especially love the dark brown I chose for the letters. The nice folks at Clothworks want to give you a chance to play with these fabrics too, so they are GIVING AWAY a fat quarter bundle (8 fat quarters) to one lucky reader of each blog. If you would like a chance to win this bundle, please leave a comment below telling me if you have ever been to Georgia. A simple yes or no will do, a detailed travel itinerary is also welcome. I would love to hear anything you might want to say!
 
Good Luck and don't forget to keep hopping!
 
Enjoy every state!
Diane

  13. I used to drive through Georgia on my way to visit my folks when they were living in Florida. I made the trip a couple of times each years until they passed. Wanted to visit some of the spots on the way to Florida, but somehow never had enough time to do that.

When a friend of my sister (who lives in GA) did a family tree search she found GA relatives that fought in the American Revolution! Now that was exciting!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  32. Your Georgia Peach license plate block is awesome. I lived in Georgia with my Dad for a short time.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have drove through Georgia on my way home from Florida. We had rented a van to go to Florida for a funeral and we were in Macon County at a gas station and my son wanted to drive. He had to back up and he hit the gas pump. Not a big hit but he hit it. Of course they called the police but not tickets or damage was done.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I just got back from Georgia 4 weeks ago. Went to the quilt show in Savannah and camped on Tybee Island. My daughter and her family live on the island, so Georgia is Always on My Mind!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I was interested in seeing what you designed. I was asked to do one for Florida but I had too many irons in the fire to participate. I did some thinking about what I might have come up with though. I do like your design. Georgia peaches are mighty tasty.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  39. Have never been to Georgia, but love your quilt! Bright and cheery! I also enjoy history...and have been learning about quilt history (thanks to Eleanor burns starting me on it) from the civil war era. Wow...what a quilt meant back in those days is amazing! Especially the Underground Railroad's use of the quilt. Quilters did so much with so little back then, I almost feel bad trying to do what they did with all the amazing ammenities that we have these days while they did the same thing..with next to nothing!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yes, I have been to Georgia. Why is it you have to fly into Atlanta and can not fly into any of the other airports without going through Atlanta? The state is fine, the airport is the hassle. 24Tangent "at" gmail "dot" com

I love your license plate design and think you did a great job channeling Harriet Powers' style. I have always loved her quilt, but didn't know until today that it was made in Georgia! Thanks for the chance in the giveaway ... when I looked on their site for the nearest retailer, I had to look within "500 miles" to find one.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  135. I went to Atlanta in 1973 with my high school band. We rode buses from the Texas panhandle to participate in a music festival at 6 Flags over Atlanta. It was spring & flowers were blooming & I thought it was the most beautiful place I had ever seen. Would love to go back some spring!

  140. I've been to Georgia a couple of times, mainly Atlanta and the surrounding area. I visited my sister who used to live in Marietta, and we visited several sites, including the "big chicken" on Peachtree Street. Then we went to a couple of fabric stores. After that she was turned into a quilter too! I love your block. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  141. Yes, I've been to Georgia several times. We took our grandson, a couple of years ago, for a week to Helen and the surrounding area. He was 3 yrs old and really enjoyed visiting the Babyland General Hospital where the Cabbage Patch babies are born. He got to hold one of the newborn babies from the nursery and he so seriously said, "she's heavy". We plan to visit that area again because it was so nice and peaceful along the river where we stayed in a Condo for the week. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  142. No. That said, I have a road trip all planned out to Savannah and Atlanta, as it's one of the last states I haven't been to that I want to see, complete with tours and surely not skipping the restaurant Kevin from Top Chef has!

  161. I visited Atlanta by accident. By accident I mean that I missed a connecting flight and had about 20 hours to explore the city, in the middle of a cold winter, in tropical vacation attire. My friend and I navigated the public transit system, and ran from sun-spot to sun-spot to stay warm before finding a neat history museum and heading back to the airport.

  166. I visited Savannah once for a couple hours on the way to somewhere else. It was gorgeous. Lush flowers, old homes, and a beautiful waterfront. We took a city tour that showcased the places featured in the book Midnight in Garden of Good and Evil. I'd recommend the book and the city! Thanks for the chance to win this gorgeous fabric. I love your Georgia design!

  175. I spent my honeymoon (October, 1988) in the North Georgia Mountains, in a town called Helen. It was such a great trip! We stayed in a little bed and breakfast, had a wonderful meal at the Hofbrau Haus, and were lucky enough to enjoy Oktoberfest that year. The changing of the trees was amazing! Thanks for bringing back the memories and for the great giveaway!
