|Original design. Quilt top made with American Made Brand cotton solids. Teresa Duryea Wong. 2018.|
I just made my first quilt top with AMB - American Made Brand cotton solids. This fabric definitely has a story! The cotton is grown in American soil, made into a textile at an American plant, dyed at another American plant, shipped to Seattle, and then shipped to quilt stores all over.
The fabric has a lovely hand and I truly enjoyed sewing with it.
For a million years, I used mostly Kona cotton, and also Moda solids. I prefer AMB. Of course I love that its American, but I think I like the way it feels and I am also very impressed with the deep, deep color. This color has a glow to it... not a sheen, (which would come from the top of the fabric), but something about the luminosity of the color is very special.
I think this will be the first of many quilts using these lovely solids. More stories in the waiting!
