Bernina Northland's A Rose By Any Other Name

This is an original design created especially for the Northern Shop Hop 2016.

A Rose By Any Other Name is a contemporary Baltimore quilt design. While I have used machine stitching exclusively you could chose to hand stitch this design. Stems and curlicues are all stitched, rather than the traditional applique work of stems. I have matched threads for the applique stitching and these are available at a special discount for the Shop Hop timeframe.

Available options are:

  • 1.1m Background fabric
