Welcome to day two of Island Batik ❤️ Aurifil Week!
Imagine a sweet momma bear preparing for the winter in the pretty Northern Woods. She tidys up her space, and before she cozies up to hibernate for the season, she bakes up her sweetest treats to share with her woodland friends! The imaginative Nan Baker of Purrfect Spots Designs dreamed up this charming back story as she designed quilts for her Signature Collection, Northern Woods, by Kathy Engle.
This earthy fabric collection features natural browns, greens and creams in outdoorsy designs such as trees, pine sprigs, and leaves. Pops of Baja, Bermuda, Celery and Copper add just the right pop of color.
Nan featured these fabrics in quite a few delicious projects! With names like “Blueberry Cheesecake”, “Chocolate Caramel Swirl” and “Butterscotch Ripple”, they are nearly impossible to resist! The best part, you can indulge in each and every one – they are all calorie free! 😉 You can find all of the Northern Woods Purrfect Spots Designs patterns here on her website.
Nan worked with past and present Island Batik Ambassadors and fellow designers The Quilt Rambler and Maria Michaels Designs and long-time industry friend Eye of the Beholder Quilt Design to create additional yummy pieces to feature her Signature Collection!

Nan has worked with Aurufil to build a recommended thread palette that you can pick up and use with your Northern Woods fabrics. Hop on over to the Aurifil blog to see Nan’s thread choices, and read an interview with the Signature Collection designer herself!
