Wolf in the Woods

Posted on: December 1st, 2017 by Lorna McMahon


This is Wolf in the Woods – a modern minimalist design that finishes in either a baby size or double quilt size. This has been a long time coming. I have had a number of requests for a wolf quilt pattern stretching back for quite a while now.



The fabrics are all from stash. The background is from Northcott Fabrics Ambience collection. The birch tree print is the left overs from the backing of the Smitten Kitten quilt – Widescreen Crosshatch in Black. The black, brown and grey are from the Northcott Fabrics Toscanna collection. The turquoise is a new stash addition – Alison Glass Sun Print Link Yonder from Clinton Modern Fabrics.

I used white thread both on top and in the bobbin to quilt those organic wavy lines. But then used black thread for attaching and finishing the binding.


The backing is Woodland Critters in white by Dear Stella Design.



The “Wolf in the Woods” quilt finished at 38″ x 48″
and was the 60th use of my 2nd edition of 100 labels
ordered from Ikaprint.



The Wolf in the Woods pattern provides instructions for making the quilt in a baby size 38″ x 48″ or a double size 76″ x 96″. And you can find the Wolf in the Woods pattern here.

  3. Another great design!! I love the blue, but the brown/grey would be something my son would love.

  4. Love the grey and white version.

  5. Wow – awesome markings with the blue on his chest. Looks beautiful just standing there looking out of the woods. Another great design, Lorna!

    I love the lone wolf, great design! The blue is my favorite version (as blue is my favorite color).

  7. Great Pattern! Congratulations on yet another Beauty!

  8. This is so striking, Lorna! I love the sense of scale you give the wolf and the tress. The blue version feels so wintery!

    Love this wolf! I think next up you should do a silver fox. I actually ran across one when I lived up north. Beautiful animal.

    What a great pattern. I love it. The backing is perfect.

  14. What a fun pattern! I really like it in blue! It makes it seem like an Arctic wolf!

  15. Cathy Tomm says:

    Great pattern. I like how good it would be for a man in your life.

  16. Wow, just Wow!! Of course, I had to get this pattern too. crystalbluern at tds dot net

  17. Unknown says:

    Beautiful! It has such a serene feeling to it.

  18. Wow. Well done. I need to stop being surprised at all the great animals you come up with. You are so creative. You might as well just make ALL the animals. LOL

  19. You've hit a home run with this one, Lorna. For me, the colors give it an erie feeling of being in a winter woods at dusk. Yet the wolf has a bit of a fairy tale look as he's rubbing his paws together, \”the better to see/hear/taste you with…\”. But he's not scary because the face so so calm and ready for a pet, like all canines. Love it! Well done!!!

  20. This is a gorgeous quilt and wonderful pattern. Any chance you will be listing 2018 QALs for next year?

    Oh, my goodness, Lorna! This new pattern is A++!
