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,


  1. Great Tale.

    It is a toss up between chocolate and mint chocolate.

    If Molly Bear was in our neck of the woods (or plains) she would have to wake up and make more sweet treats to get her through all of this snow and cold weather we are still having.

  2. Getting hungry. I think I need some Blueberry Cheesecake to go with my Yorkshire Pudding.

  3. Gorgeous fabrics and projects, I look forward to seeing the creations on the hop. The flavor choice is hard, but I think today is a Mint Chocolate day.

  4. Blueberry. Awesome fabric! Beautiful quilts! Have a wonderful day! angielovesgary2 atgmail dotcom

  5. Mint Chocolate sounds delicious!

  6. chocolate would be first followed by blueberry cheesecake!

  7. Looove Bluberry! Thank you for chance to win your Give-a-way :)

  8. Chocolate or caramel are my go-to's!
