Chinese Red cotton for the wolf medallion, the little red riding hood's hood and the border, linen in five different shades of white for the appliqué one shade of white for every layer of the picture. 5 different shades of beige for the vertical linen panel and all the different shade of white I could find in my cotton stash for the horizontal panel of little squares.
In the end the details did not really show up in the finished quilt but as long as I know they are there….
White cotton, beige linen and the Chinese red cotton for the disappearing nine patch on the back. The quilting thread is red sulky thread 12w.

Big bad wolf embroidery white on red (upside down on my ironing board) with the patched back showing:
For the back I choose this simple pattern; it is called disappearing nine patch and very easy to piece. You’ll find the perfect pattern tutorial from Helen on her blog
Last but not least the quilting with pretty big stitches and not a fancy pattern at all. Just long even lines all over the quilt, except for the appliqué part:
Little Red Riding Hood – end of story…
