Design Wall Monday - Almost Finished

Howling Wolves Panel quilt top almost done

There hasn't been a lot of sewing going on here in the last week. It took me until Saturday to figure out just how I wanted to do the 1st and 3rd borders on the wolves. Then I realized that the scraps of purple and the 2 blue prints were too small. At that point, I quickly invented Plan B and cut some fabric.

It won't take long to stitch on the 3rd and final border. Conveniently, there are strips less than 3" wide left of the 2 fat quarters I used for geese and borders, so it's off to the scrap bin for those. No worrying about what I can do with half a fat quarter.

I've already sliced strips of 2 fabrics ready to start stitching the next quilt top as soon as I get the last border on these howling wolves.

  1. Looks like you made the too little fabric work for you. I enjoy those challenges, but usually not until I decide the final quilt looks as good (or better) than the original plan. The quilt looks great.

    1. My original thought was to use 1 fabric for the 1st and 3rd borders, but nothing in my stash worked for that. So I stitched the geese and stars and waited for inspiration on how to piece the other 2 borders.
