    Lots of quilty plates up here in New Hampshire. Some I've seen: Quilts, Quilter, Quiltr, IQuilt, Quilt+.

    Bit of trivia: New Hampshire has more vanity license plates per capita than any other state in the US. Reason: they are cheap and you "own" the plate for life (yes you pay to renew it every year, but the "name" is yours until you give it up).

    In Indiana, the plate is dead after your change cars. You can get the same one back after a year or so

    Had to look this up. We used to have a Siamese; well, our daughter did. He was gorgeous and we all dearly loved him. When our daughter came home from school, he got on her lap, looked at her as if to say goodbye, and then passed on. It still brings tears to my eyes.

    When we bought a 1995 Astro Van, customized interior. I got a plate Gquiltz. When we bought a truck I couldn't use it, I still have the plates.

    Same as in Alabama....this just started several yrs. ago. I remember the time when if you sold or traded your vehicle, the license plate had to stay with the vehicle, and the new owner had to keep that plate, or pay to buy a new one.

    I know we've gone to the license bureau and transferred a plate to a different car.

    If I could have one I think it would be LV2QLT. But I have disabled vet tags so that one is out for me.

    Beauty ring on my car says "Road tripping to another Quilt Shop". It was a birthday present from a quilting friend of mine. Have had some interesting conversations with quilters in parking lots and have made some good friends because of that GIFT !!! Needless to say, I always take it with me if I am sell the car.

    I'm not familiar with CA laws, but in this neck of the woods, the plate wasn't any good after you sold it. My daughter kept her plates WMNFLY on her car for a long time, but gave it up after she left NH, although she's still working at airports.

    I just spent the last 30 minutes seeing what is and is not available as a personalized license plate in my state! Boy oh boy, that was interesting! I'd love to get personalized plates, but with the way I drive...not slowly, I'd prefer to blend in with all the regular license plate vehicles out on the road. Too bad. I'd love a plate that had my nick name on it, or something having to do with my career or hobbies! Dh would look silly in a car with 'Quilting' related plates!!!
    Go forth and sew!

    I don't have quilter plates, but I do have Amateur Radio plates. In Oregon, you can transfer your plates when you purchase a new car. We laugh when we talk about mine because I had the 'nerve' to argue with 'an official DMV employee' when I was buying them - I knew how much it should cost (some of the older 'hams' had told me about how much to expect) and the guy kept coming up with different amounts that were way over - it turns out he was trying to make me pay the two-year renewal and I had just paid it a couple of months earlier. We finally settled on a mutually agreeable amount, but it took me and several employees. However, each time I have moved them to a new car I have had problems with DMV - and yes, I am not afraid to argue with them. The second time I moved them I went to DMV ahead of time and asked what to do. When I followed their directions, they said I did it wrong! ARGH! They even messed up the registration on my husband's truck and it wasn't even involved! I am hoping to keep my current car for a long time - I will probably need new plates because of their condition before I need to move them to another car. In Oregon, you don't have to pay extra for 'vanity plates' that are Amateur Radio call sign plates. That makes it nice, too.
