Check out all of us who link up with Judy L. at Patchwork Times on Mondays.
We have some awesome stuff on our walls!
Well, THEY do - ME - not so much sometimes - ;))


Note - these instructions are written in LEFTISH.
If you are right-handed - just reverse the directions.

I took another break –

From my LHQ Sampler Quilt -
See the page/tab at the top of my blog -

I decided to finish the backing for the Wolf Song quilt –

I started working on it a while back -

But I got sidetracked - ;))

The panel came with two more wolf scenes –
Perfect for the back –

Add some brown trees for a strip in the middle -

Add some green trees and the extra wolf vignette fabric –
For a strip along the top –

Then fill in with some black along the bottom -

Looking good!! –

And then -

I saw another squirrel - :))

And never got back to it -

Until now -

So -

One problem is that my first plan doesn’t fit this wall -

It's too big -

So I switched to the wall in the hallway -

And - because I have a tendency to measure WRONG -

I put up the top first -

Now - if I pin the back on top of it -

With some extra on each side -

I can SEE if it’s big enough -

Or not - ;))

The green trees and extra wolf vignette fabric -
At the top -

A chunk of dark green at the bottom -
Gotta save that BLACK - LOVE that BLACK!! -

The wolf scenes can go in the middle -
So they won’t get chopped off when it gets trimmed -
With a spacer strip to set off the wolf vignette fabric -

Sew some more green trees to the left -
And some brown trees to the right -

Shift the big green chunk on the bottom -
Over to the left side -
Add some more green trees to the right side -

NEVER going to use those green trees again -
Might as well use it UP!! -

And when I sew larger pieces together -
I always put an extra pin to keep the sides straight -
See the top pin on the right?
I’m sewing the edge along the bottom -

Close-up of the wolf scenes -
Looking good!!

Here’s another shot from the other end of the hallway -
The whole top is covered -
Looks big enough to me - ;))

Sew it all together -
Put it up on the wall -
Top and back -
Side by side -

Now I need the sleeve - binding - and label -

Then I can pack it up for my friend/quilter -

To quilt -

While I make the scrap card -

Heart -

Write the story -

And gather photos - ;))

Talk to you later – gotta go – gotta sew –

I too am a Lefty handed quilter and as you well know we do do things in the "leftish" style. But what I really like is all my quilter friends are so jealous that I can rotary cut with both hands.....and do it well!! Left handers are in their right mind....creative and smart all at the same time. Love your wolves!!
