Purrfect Spots: My Signature Collection, Northern Woods: This week is very special as it is the Aurifil/Island Batik Week and I am so excited to be sharing my Signature Collection, Northern Wood...
This week is very special as it is the Aurifil/Island Batik Week and I am so excited to be sharing my Signature Collection, Northern Woods, by Kathy Engle for Island Batik Fabrics. These are my favorite colors - Fall Colors and I was delighted to have the opportunity to work with such lovely fabrics.
I used Aurifil Threads on all my quilts as they blended together beautifully with the fabrics. Aren't all the colors just "purrfect"?
Chocolate Caramel Swirl
Morels & More
But there is more as I asked some of my fellow designers if they wanted to design a quilt using these lovely fabrics. They of course were delighted.
Here is Prisms by Maria Hrabovsky of Maria Michaels Designs.
And then here is Yorkshire Pudding Table Runner and placemats by Margaret Willingham of Eye of the Beholder Quilt Design.
and Mint Chocolate Chip by Karen Overton of The Quilt Rambler.
And of course my collection would not be complete without Kennel Quilts. So I made two Kennel Quilts using all the colors from the collection. My rescue kitty, Gibbs is enjoying sleeping on these! Can you blame her?
I am also happy to say that both Aurifil and Island Batik are partners with The Quilt Pattern Magazine in the TQPM Kennel Quilt program which helps animal shelters and pets that have been affected by disasters. Since Hurricane Sandy almost 20,000 Kennel Quilts have been made and donated to help our furry friends.
Now you may be wondering how my quilts got their delicious names. Well you can read all about it on the Island Batik and Aurifil blogs today as both are talking about this wonderful collection.And did I mention there will be some great giveaways so be sure to visit their sites.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my Signature Collection, Northern Woods. Please leave me a comment and let me know which is your favorite quilt as I will be giving away a free pdf. pattern to one lucky reader.
Thank you for stopping by.
Until next time,
