Wolves - PATTERN

This pattern will introduce you to a new technique which I have used in a limited amount before. Instead of satin stitch for all the appliqués, some of these wolves were sewn with a darning foot. I used both straight stitch (scribbling over the fabric, drawing the fur, especially around the edges of the outlines) and zigzag stitch (to fill in noses, insides of mouths, and teeth). I traced the marks where I wanted to stitch the colored fur in black permanent fabric marker, then scribbled back and forth in the direction of the way fur grows in colored thread. Some of the threads were the UltraTwist (two rayon threads in different colors twisted together to make a single thread that stitches up in a tweed effect).

The quilt in the photo measures 25" x 29".

We have made several quilts with this pattern and they all come out with different measurements because the arrangement of the blocks has been different.  Should you leave out a block the whole configuration changes.  If you make one block twice (reversing the design and using in a different fabric) the whole configuration changes.  Also, if you used all the designs in this pattern twice, the quilt could be really big.  Combining this pattern with other Critter Pattern Works patterns will vary the size of the finished quilt even more. 

How do we combine blocks of different sizes?  If you have a long block and a shorter one and you want them to go together, add a strip of fabric in a different value (darker or lighter than the ones around it) to the shorter one.  Sew those two fabrics to the longer applique block and square them up on the outside edges.  This is now a unit.  Make more units.  If the units don't fit exactly together, add more strips to make them work together.  When all your units sewn together and are big enough to make it the quilt size you desire, add a border and quilt it.

We have How to Applique videos if you learn visually.  Watch our designer, Debora Konchinsky take you through all the steps to make a Critter Pattern Works quilt.
