West Branch, MI is near the Ogemaw hills, Up North by Troll standards but a mere two and a half hours from Metro Detroit. It calls itself a Victorian town, and there are some lovely Victorian homes and buildings.
Some of my favorites were the Redwork quilts. This was a pre-printed panel beautifully embroidered and hand quilted.

Tea Party Time by Barb MacDonald, Oscoda

And of course pieced quilts abounded. This pattern was one I also made, a late 1990s pattern from a quilt magazine.
Pieced and quilted by Treva Meyers, Clarksville MI
and bought in 1984 by Terry Boyce of Rose City.
