Sunday Quilt Inspiration: LICENSE PLATES

You may remember that I wrote a few days ago (click here) that I've been chosen to make the Louisiana license plate block for the American Made Brand of cottons grown, milled, and dyed in the United States.  The blog tour begins tomorrow!  So click on the yellow license plate on the right to go the AMB website or on this link to find the list of blogs that are debuting their license plates.  Each one will have a giveaway on the date of the debut and many are adding to the fabrics given by American Made Brand.

Maybe art doesn't have to match the couch, but I love when the quilts do!  Here are a few quilts that could have been inspired by a license plate.
