Wolf Line Quilting Pattern

“It a Howl!”

Use this free wolf line quilting pattern to bring some freedom to your quilts.

Come with us as we guide you through what this design looks like and how to use it to make your special quilt a one of a kind masterpiece. 

Wolf Line Quilting Pattern

You can place this wolf pattern on your entire quilt top or you can arrange it wherever you choose.  It’s your call.  You are the artist.

Just keep in mind where your placement is going to be for this pattern amongst your quilt top.  Make sure it accommodates the design your piecing has.  We don’t want your quilt to have too much contrast between the piecing design and the pattern.  Doing so might make your quilt lose some of the wonderful effect that these stitches can create.

Think Oreo.

Once you have your quilting cookie assembled, then its time move on to the steps.


This is such a beautiful design that we know you will want to use it again and again.  That is why it is best to print it out and make your own hand quilting template with a stencil.  We describe how to make it here.

Just adjust the image to the size or sizes you desire before printing it out.  If you would like to use several sizes, put the image into a word program on your computer. 

This allows you to make the images as many times as you’d like in the sizes you want.  You can even put them all on one page to save paper. ;)

When you have completed the sizing task, it’s time to move on to the nitty gritty.

Align your template to where you want your butterfly to be.

Mark the template of the wolf line quilting pattern using your favorite method.  This could be fabric markers, pencils, quilt pounce, etc.

We prefer the quilt pounce pad with chalk because of how simple and fast it is.  Also, you are less likely to have the stencil move on you when you’re using it. 

There is nothing worse than using a pen or pencil when the stencil shifts on you.  We’ve all be there.  It’s not pretty and it can be very frustrating.

Just be sure to mark out one section with the pounce and quilt, before you mark the next.  This will make sure that the marks are always visible. ;)

Now that the image of the pattern has been transferred to your quilt top in the section you are working, place your quilting stitches along the lines.

Then move on to the next section and the next and so on until all of the quilting on your top is completed.

When your quilt is quilted, bind the edges with your chosen method, and add your label or signature.

Congratulations!  Your quilt is complete.

Another Idea

Another way that this wolf pattern can come to life is to use it on a whole cloth quilt.  That’s when fabric paints can really make this design pop out at you.

If you’re extra ambitious, give it a try.  The final result is sure to be a genuine one of a kind art piece that will be admired by many.

Wrap Up

No matter which way you choose to use this wolf line quilting pattern, it will make an excellent quilt to show off to your friends and family. 

You might even consider using it for a quilting gift!  Have fun and enjoy.

Until next time.

Happy quilting,
