You're a Mean One

Grinch - Amy Robles
The Grinch by Jessica Lee Blacknall
12" paper pieced
Tested by Amy Robles

A Note from Jessica: This pattern does not include embroidery patterns for the Grinch's smile.  It will have to be free-handed based on the picture, but can easily be left off.  I will try to add this to the pattern in the next couple of months.

Thanks, Jessica, for the great (and much requested!) pattern!

We hope you enjoy another Doctor Who pattern to embroider from Cali! She gives this one 3 out of 5 for the dense stitching.

Harry Potter Quilt Along - Block 3

The Project of Doom 2015 Quilt Along on Fandom In Stitches photo PoD2015ComingSoon_zpsf2dd6a6c.jpg

Welcome to week three of our Harry Potter Bookcase Quilt Along!

The first two weeks were absolutely astonishing! I could have never anticipated the level of participation for this second go-round of making one of my all-time favorite quilts.

Want to see what I mean? Yesterday's Tuesday Photos is stuffed with gorgeous PoD blocks!

Look for a summary right here of previous weeks at the top of each Quilt Along post. All patterns will also be added to the Harry Potter Pattern archive here on Fandom In Stitches.
  • Week One - includes Block 1 pattern with variations,  and all the info you need to follow this QAL!
  • Week Two - includes Block 2 pattern

And now... our third week's installment!

2015 Block 3

with variations
All blocks finish 10" (10 1/2" unfinished)


While this block still includes the original version with a simple potion bottle/vase, you now have two more variations to choose from included in the pattern. You can see those below!

*both variations below are included in the Block 3 2015 Pattern Update*

2015 Block 3 Deathly Hallows Alt 2015 Block 3 Dark Arts Alt

Left - Block 3 with the Deathly Hallows symbol substituted for the potion bottle/vase.
Right - Block 3 with the Dark Mark on the slanted book cover

NOTE: All pattern pieces are included for these options in the Block 3 pattern. See information included in the pattern for the pieces to make based on which variation you'd like to use.

POD-Week 03

All original Project of Doom patterns will continue to be available on the Harry Potter page right here on Fandom In Stitches. I will be adding the new versions to the Harry Potter page as we go!

Useful Info
  • For best results print with NO SCALING. In Google Drive (where this file is hosted) uncheck “fit to page..” See your printer instructions for more details if needed. Scale included on every page for your convenience.
  • On the actual pattern, WHITE indicates background fabric. All other colors are approximate representations (colors are intentionally light to save ink), but you are welcome to use any fabric colors you may choose.
  • All patterns finish 10" (10 1/2" unfinished). Seam allowance is included.
  • You will need approximately 3 yards of background fabric for individual blocks plus optional quilt border. You'll also need various amounts of scrap fabrics for books and magical objects. 
  • To complete your quilt, you will also need 1 yard of “shelf” fabric. 100% quilting cotton is recommended for best results. Fabric amounts are for optional layouts finishing 61”x 78” - 63” x82”. Different quilt layouts may require more fabric.
  • Want to add book titles? A list of titles from the series is here.
  • Get help with paper piecing, embroidery and more on our Quilting Help page!
  • Visit sewhooked.com for paper piecing help including video and text tutorials created by me.

About The Project of Doom:
  • This is the original Harry Potter-inspired Bookcase Quilt called The Project of Doom (PoD), designed by me, Jennifer Ofenstein in 2011, but many of the patterns have received minor updates and all will now include a size scale so you can check your pattern size before you stitch. 
  • There will be some alternative patterns presented. Some blocks will include alternative pieces and, in some cases, entire alternative blocks. 
  • For those of you looking to create a Dark Arts version, I have plans for that, too!
  • The original patterns will continue to be available, so if you prefer to use the 2011 pattern, that's a-okay!
  • All Project of Doom patterns are 100% free and they will stay that way. These patterns are free for your personal and NON-profit use only. Not to be used for manufacture or distribution. Sale of this pattern or quilts made from this pattern is prohibited.



    About the Quilt Along:

    • Like the original Project of Doom, our 2015 Quilt Along will be one presented one quilt block a week (with an occasional bonus/alternative) on each Wednesday for 30 weeks.
    • All Project of Doom QAL activities, prizes, etc. will be posted on fandominstitches.com.
    • Want to have lots of friends to talk to while you stitch? Join the Project of Doom Facebook Group!
    • Join the QAL at anytime during 2015 and work at your own pace. There is no penalty for starting late.
    • If you've already started your PoD quilt, you are more than welcome to join us! It helps on a project like this to be cheered along by friends!
    • .If you're looking to design your own PoD blocks...just you wait, we'll have a special week to share your patterns at the end of the Quilt Along!


    flickr prize


    January 2015 PoD Participation Prize

    Welcome to the first Harry Potter-themed prize donated by me for sharing your 2015 PoD photos with our Fandom In Stitches Flickr group

    The January winner will receive the officially licensed Harry Potter fabric seen here, a box of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans and enough Jelly Bean fabric for his or her Project of Doom quilt!

    Since this prize is coming out of my own stash, only blocks made from my original patterns (unaltered/unedited) are eligible to win.

    Why share via flickr? It's the best way for me to post your photos right here on fandominstitiches.comEvery Tuesday, we have a virtual show & tell called Tuesday Photos so everyone following along can see an entire week's picture in one place every Tuesday. 

    Project of Doom 2015 - Signature Block


    If you've participated in events like this with me before, then you know that I LOVE signature quilts! I'd like to invite everyone participating in the 2015 Project of Doom Quilt Along to share a block for a special 2015 Signature Quilt. Names can be hand or machine embroidered, printed fabric, fabric pen, marker, or stenciled with fabric paint/pen, etc. are all acceptable. Please, no iron-ons or transfers. This quilt is my way of remembering everyone that quilted along in 2015!

    EDITED TO ADD: The pattern was updated for Week 3 to correct the size.




    Want to make blocks, but don't need a whole quilt? Have you made blocks in the past but would like to start over?

    I'm collecting Project of Doom blocks all year long to make fun charity quilts for The Linus Connection, which provides quilts for kids in crisis Central Texas!

    If you have blocks to donate, you can get my mailing address from the Signature Block pattern(above). Donations to The Linus Connection are tax deductible in the U.S. If you'd like a receipt, please let me know when you send your blocks.

    If you're located in Australia, a member of the Project of Doom Facebook group will be collecting blocks for Sunshine Coast Linus based out of Queensland. Join our group for more information.
