Riley Blake Designs "Nature's Finest" Blog Tour

Riley Blake Designs just released some new panels called "Nature's Finest" which showcase some gorgeous animals in their natural habitats. They are amazingly brilliant in colors and designs!

Nature's Finest Dream Catcher Wolf Panel is the one I chose for my project. I've always loved the beauty of wolves and respected their place in nature. Adding two dream catchers to the sides of the quilt panel was an easy choice because of the panel's name.

The golden eyes of this wolf are captivating, but of course, there is some danger behind them. I'm sure a wolf's dreams would be to run free, safe from harm, and to always have food to eat.

Their are other panels in the "Nature's Finest" collection and some pillow panels. Aren't they gorgeous!

I used four different fabrics with this panel to make the quilt: RBD White, RBD Black, RBD Butterscotch, and RBD Medium Blue. The butterscotch fabric was used for the border, too. 

Quilting was by Ginger from Sew Sassy Longarm. We both felt this design worked to keep it a bit more masculine and not take away from those awesome wolves.

I love this guy the most!

The Nevada desert was a great backdrop for this quilt, though the temperature was 100 degrees at 7:45 a.m. My husband was a trooper for helping me that morning. It was windy and hot!

The quilt pattern for "Dream Catcher Wolves" can be found HERE.
The finished quilt measures 54" x 60".
