Design Challenge: Make it Mosaic!

Make It Mosaic quilt block challenge on fandominstitches.com photo makeitmosaic_zps6c1e54e9.jpg

Welcome to Make It Mosaic, a brand new Design Invitational & Quilt Block Challenge right here on Fandom In Stitches!

We have a fun challenge and a great prize to share with you today and we hope you'll take this opportunity to jump in and join us as a Fandom In Stitches Designer!

The Rules:
  • Design an original quilt block using a pixel grid (mosaic) format. (There's some nifty software that can get you started here and a FREE class on Craftsy here).
  • Please note: designs must be your original creation and not based on the work of another artist or taken from another website. Edited to add: "original" means we are asking you to not use a chart or grid pattern already created by someone else for craft or quilt purposes.
  • Blocks can be as simple or complicated as you like and made using any size grid, but you MUST make a sample out of fabric.
  • Designs can be images, words, etc. from the fandom of your choice, keeping in mind that all Fandom In Stitches patterns are PG-13.
  • Patterns can be drafted using drawing or quilting software or hand drawn, as long as they are clean and easy to understand. (More info)
  • All patterns should include a full color grid (example) AND number of squares to cut out of each color fabric (i.e. red = 28, white = 76, etc.). Since these types of blocks are all generally pieced the same way, additional piecing instructions are optional.
  • A photo of your completed block AND your pattern file are required to enter.
  • Patterns should be in PDF format (preferred for easier printing).
  • How To Enter:
    • Post your photo to the Fandom In Stitches flickr group by Tuesday, November 11, 2014, 11:59 pm CST (US).  
    • Tag your photo #makeitmosaic and include the link to your pattern OR Email us your pattern file so we can share it here on FiS.
    • Please do not submit photos or patterns via comments or Facebook.
  • On Wednesday, November 12, 2014, we will post all of your fabulous designs right here on Fandom In Stitches
  • Visitors will be able to vote anonymously on his or her favorite and the winner will be announced Wednesday, November 25, 2014.
  • One lucky participating designer for Make it Mosaic will receive a Fandom In Stitches coffee mug!
  • Feeling inspired? Enter more than one pattern, as long as it follows the rules!

Harry Gets An Overhaul: Hogwarts Edition

5" paper pieced
2014 Update


Earlier this month, I mentioned that I'd updated oodles of my Harry Potter patterns.

For the most part, since these are all patterns you've seen before, I did the updates quietly, editing patterns and uploading new files without mentioning it here on Fandom In Stitches.

Several of you have mentioned to me that you have some of the older patterns bookmarked for future use, so I thought it would be useful to give you a rundown of which patterns are freshly updated.

I updated A LOT of patterns, so we'll go one category at a time, probably once a week until we've covered them all.

Today, we have patterns from the Hogwarts Category.
