Countdown to a Road Trip!

  My cousin is a cotton farmer in Texas, and I am so proud to be part of the AMB blog tour and promote a fabric that is entirely sourced and manufactured in our beautiful country.  One week to go before we start our state to state tour.  Here is a little peek of my license plate.
Can you guess what I am showcasing?

Here it the link to the other bloggers participating:
Remember, a fat quarter bundle of these beautiful fabrics will be given away on each of the 50 blogs.
In addition to the patterns for each of the state's license plate, the bloggers have come up with some great giveaways of special treats reflecting what they like most about their state.
Now I am off to collect some of the items I will be including in my Arizona gift bag!

That has to be part of a saguaro cactus since you are from AZ! All the times I have traveled through the cotton fields in Texas, I wondered where that cotton was shipped. I am thrilled if it stays in the USA and is made into beautiful fabric here! Can't wait to see what everyone is making.

Looks like those awesome big cactus to me. :) My kids liked driving through the cotton growing areas when we would drive from Dallas to Utah and seeing the "snow" on the side of the road.

I know what it is! Can't wait to see the rest. I am really excited to hear we will finally be able to buy cotton fabric grown and made in the good old USA!

Looking good Cheryl! From what I can see, and what I remember of Arizona, your license plate will do the state justice!

Saguaro's! I know they only grow in the Sonoran Desert, Tucson
...Mount Lemmon and such.
I hope you share your tutorial on making the Saguaro. I only have a print of one (Alexander Henry) and made my quilt group badge holder out of this print. The compliments are non-stop! Applique would be perfect, all though it would be my first attempt.
