Northwoods Memories #2

Peggy hand embroidered this lovely Northwoods Memories quilt, the pattern is by Beth Ritter and you can find the pattern at her Etsy shop here.  Our guild had a UFO challenge this past year and Peggy challenge herself to complete one block a month. She said if it wasn't for our challenge it might still be a UFO. She used flannel fabrics for the border, sashing and scrappy rectangles.

I cross hatched the embroidered blocks with a beige 100wt Invisifil thread and used brown So Fine  in the sashing and borders.  Batting is Quilters Dream Blend.

I broke one of my photography rules with some of these photos...never take pictures towards the sun. Glad I broke it just this once.  ;)


  1. Definitely a great decision to finish this UFO. Love the quilting you did on it.

  2. Like a lot and very inspiring.

  3. The cross hatching, beautiful,. and that last photo with a cobweb of sunshine rays, stunning.

  4. Gorgeous! I love cross hatch over embroideries.
