Will the Wolf Survive?

My guild's challenge this year was to quilt a song.  I knew I wanted to use the pattern by Toni Whitney, Winter Wolf, in my quilt.  I found the song, Will the Wolf Survive?, by Los Lobos and the whole quilt just came together in my head.  This is the first time my execution of a quilt matched the picture in my head.  Never made a round quilt before either, nor have I ever matched the binding around a quilt to the material on he quilt.  Everything was fused to the background and I used Texture Magic to create the bushes.  I quilted it on my Innova 18" using King Tut (13 colors) and Bottom Line threads from Superior Threads.
