TGIF in the Northern Woods


Well it's Friday in the Northern Woods and Molly Bear is ready for the weekend. She has been such a busy bear making so many treats with my Signature Collection by Kathy Engle for Island Batik.  She plans to share them all Saturday at the Northern Woods "FurBall" with all her friends.

There will be dancing, singing and lots of fun for all who attend. She has made a very special dessert for this. 

It is called Chocolate Caramel Swirl.  This is her favorite as she loves caramel. Actually, she loves chocolate and all the other treats she has made as well.


















Molly hopes that you have enjoyed all her treats this weekend, but just so you don't forget, she plans to share them again on Saturday. She will be enjoying them will all her forest friends too. 


Molly has more loved making all these treats and she is happy to have all the fabric chefs showing off their skills. Be sure and check them all out.

Wandering in the Northern Woods

Welcome to  Day 4 of the Northern Woods Blog Hop featuring my Signature Collection by Kathy Engle for Island Batik! Let's continue with the adventures of the Northern Woods Bears, one in particular, who is a very clever bear! Her name is Molly.



Well Molly Bear decided she ate a little too much  Butterscotch Ripple yesterday. It is time to get healthy again!

So she decided to wander in the Northern Woods to see what she could find. 


Here is Molly along with  Bob. He is leading the way while she follows and looks for some very special food for dinner. (This is not the Northern Woods fabric, but a different collection from Island Batik).

I made this quilt a few years ago and it hangs in my living room. You will notice all the animals in the green blocks around Molly & Bob.

The sky shows the Aurora Borealis. I just love this as it does depict all the wildlife in the Northern Woods.






While on their search for food, Molly found some lovely Morel Mushrooms or as I call it - Morels & More. She is going to make a lovely Mushroom Soup!

Such a clever bear!


But you don't have to wander all over the Northern Woods to find these mushrooms or this fabric. Check with your local quilt shop as they are both available now.






Molly has more delights to share and so do all the fabric chefs. Here is the schedule:

April 16: Nan Baker  –  Purrfect Spots
April 17: Margaret Willingham  –   Eye of the Beholder 
April 18: Maria Hrabovsky  –   Maria’s Quilt Scraps
April 19: Karen Overton  –   The Quilt Rambler
April 20: Tina Dillard  –  Quilting Affection Designs
April 21: Joan Kawano  –  MooseStash Quilting

Please come back tomorrow to see what Molly Bear will do next!

Until then,

Sunshine in the Northern Woods

Today is Day 3 of the Island Batik Northern Woods Blog Hop. I hope you have been enjoying all the beautiful quilts made from my Signature Collection. 


 
It was such a beautiful day filled with Sunshine and after a healthy salad yesterday, Molly Bear decided she needed something sweet.


So she made Butterscotch Ripple and even added Sprinkles. However these are not ordinary Sprinkles. Molly cut them in all shapes and sizes as she loves to create delicacies for all the woodland creatures. 


 







She looked at all the wonderful colors and decided to make a sprinkle from each one. So many delicious flavors. Such a clever bear!

But after all this decorating, Molly decided to just sit in the sunshine and enjoy her dessert! Such a nice way to spend the day!





She has more delights to share and so do all the fabric chefs. Here is the schedule:

April 16: Nan Baker  –  Purrfect Spots
April 17: Margaret Willingham  –   Eye of the Beholder 
April 18: Maria Hrabovsky  –   Maria’s Quilt Scraps
April 19: Karen Overton  –   The Quilt Rambler
April 20: Tina Dillard  –  Quilting Affection Designs

And speaking of fabrics, the Northern Woods collection is now available in your favorite fabric shop? Be sure and ask for the Northern Woods collection!

But come back tomorrow to see what Molly Bear has done!

Until then,

A Northern Woods Story


 Welcome to my blog where I am going to share with you a tale of the Northern Woods.

 

I only found out about this when I started designing quilts with My Signature Collection, Northern Woods by Kathy Engle for Island Batik!




These colors are so rich and vibrant. Don't you agree?
















Looking at these delicious fabrics, I began to think of chocolate, caramel, blueberry, butterscotch, etc. You get the idea.

How does this fit with the Northern Woods?

Well do you what the bears in the Northern Woods do before they hibernate in the winter time? They make sweet treats. It started with the bears and they had so much fun creating so many wonderful things, that even the raccoons wanted to get in on the fun. 

Here Emily Raccoon is making wonderful vanilla, chocolate, and mint cupcakes! 

Just a small project. The "purrfect" size for her.






 
However, Molly Bear went all out and created some Blueberry Cheesecake!
This one is quite a treat. 

However, she didn't stop there and neither will I. The rest of her treats will be shared with you all week long, not only by me but by a group of talented designers who made their treats with the Northern Woods collection.







Everyday this week one of these fabric chefs will be sharing treats of their own. Here is the schedule:


April 16: Nan Baker  –  Purrfect Spots
April 17: Margaret Willingham  –   Eye of the Beholder 
April 18: Maria Hrabovsky  –   Maria’s Quilt Scraps
April 19: Karen Overton  –   The Quilt Rambler
April 20: Tina Dillard  –  Quilting Affection Designs
April 21: Joan Kawano  –  MooseStash Quilting


 Island Batik will also be sharing on their blog! But there is more as there will be some nice treats that will be given away too such as fabrics and patterns. And speaking of fabrics, the Northern Woods collection is now available in your favorite fabric shop? Be sure and ask for the Northern Woods collection!

Please leave a comment and tell me your favorite flavor-Chocolate, Butterscotch, Caramel, Blueberry, Mint Chocolate or Pudding. We will have a drawing next Monday, April 23.

Meanwhile I will be blogging each day with another quilt treat that Molly Bear has made for her Northern Woods Friends.

Thank you for stopping by!

Until tomorrow,
Nan
