7/26/2013: I have started working on the second of 4 projects that I have envisioned for my totem series — a frog, the totem of my partner.

4/26/2012: The wolf’s back and and portions of his face have been cut and placed — need to do some top stitching on the new units prior to stitching them to the background. Unfortunately I lost one of my template pieces for the quilt when sewing room was packed up for room renovations, so I will have to go into Photoshop and generate to piece again.

1/21/2013: The fabrics have arrived and the pattern has been cut apart and are ready to get started.

1/18/2013: Just got a shipping confirmation on the fabrics for this quit. They should arrive sometime next week … I cannot wait to see them.

Getting ready to start a new design project which I have given the working name of “Totems”.

I have always felt that the wolf was my totem, so I thought that is was about time that  I created a quilt that paid homage to that wonderful creature.

The following is the design drawn out on freezer paper.

I spent a fair amount of time this week selecting fabrics  — a few I had in my stash and others I had to order online (we live in a very rural area so most non-essentials have to be ordered in). So, now I just need to wait for the orders to come in and then the fun begins….
