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 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"?

Here are my quilts.                       Blueberry Cheesecake

Butterscotch Ripple

Chocolate Caramel Swirl

Morels & More

Fruit Salad

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,

  6. All the patterns are beautiful. It was hard to choose just one as my favorites are Blueberry Cheesecake, Fruit Salad, and Chocolate Caramel Swirl. I think I would have to choose Chocolate Caramel Swirl since it looks like it would be the easiest for me to complete in a reasonable amount of time.

  7. I love your quilt patterns. I can't choose between them. Thank you for making kennel quilts also.

  8. Morels & More is my favorite pattern! All the patterns are awesome!

  9. oh yes, Butterscotch ripple , yummy. Thanks for the chance to win . C. D.
