Note: Posting this a day early in honor of Mother's Day. I am heading up to North Dakota for the weekend to spend some time with my Mom.
This week I had an opportunity to work on a Minnesota themed quilt. To complement the Minnesota themed fabric, my customer wanted a north woods look to the quilt. So I had the opportunity to design a new pantograph.
Pinecones and pine branches. This definitely says Minnesota north woods.
See how to draft the pinecone using Art and Stitch. Art and Stitch is digitizing software for quilters and embroiderers. You could also use the technique from this video to freehand the design.
Would you like to try the software before purchasing it. You can download a trial version on Art and Stitch's website. You will not be able to save with the trial version -- but it is a chance to try out my tutorials and see if the software is for you.
You can also purchase Art and Stitch in my store.

This pattern is an easy to stitch out design -- perfect for a masculine quilt or any quilt desiring a north woods theme. The rows would be best stitched out with a 18% offset.
All digital patterns are available for immediate download upon purchase.
Separate files included for all major embroidery and quilting formats. Embroidery size is 8.9" x 2.97".
On sale for $7.50 (regularly $15).
OR ---- Would you prefer me to quilt this on your next nature themed quilt? I am currently accepting quilting orders for pantographs and all-over quilting.
