Peanuts - Pigpen

Hello everyone, Alida here!

A new member of the Peanuts family has been added to our collection!
This block was not included in the Peanuts BOM that I mentioned in a previous post (to see the complete layout of the Peanuts quilt, with information about the schedule, just click this Peanuts BOM @ Beaquilter)

Mary (at needledmom.blogspot.com) contacted me because she stitched ahead few of my Peanuts pattern but the one that her grandchildren love (Pigpen) was not in the list. So she asked me if I could make the pattern and the day after I made it she put it together and now we have that beautiful block that you see above!!
Thanks Mary for the fantastic job!!

I hope you all will share photos of your Peanuts blocks (or other projects you made using Fandom In Stitches patterns) with our Flickr group for a chance to win fabulous monthly prizes! You receive one entry for each project. Only photos posted to Flickr are eligible to win.

Until next time...
Happy sewing!!

Harry Potter Quilt Along - Week 4

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

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

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
  • Week Three - includes Block 3 and two with variations

And now... our final January installment!
2015 Block 4

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


Today's block has, at first look, been updated very little. The changes are entirely technical to make it easier to swap out the bottom right hand portion of the block. 

There are two variations included in the pattern in addition to the original version of Harry's Glasses, but you can swap out any other 5" design for the look of your choice. Please keep in mind that designs that aren't "seated" will appear to float unless you account for that when piecing.

*both variations below are included in the Block 4 - 2015 Pattern Update*
2015 Block 4 with glasses from a different perspective 2015 Block 4 with Hand of Glory

Left - Block 4 with Harry's Glasses, version 2, edited specifically to fit this block.
Right - Block 4 with The Hand of Glory for the Dark Arts version of this quilt.

NOTE: All pattern pieces are included for these options in the Block 4 pattern. See information included in the pattern for the pieces to make based on which variation you'd like to use.


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!

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!




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.

Very glittery. I got over my fear of this block and just did it.  It's not perfect, but I love it. I wanted to put the does next to the book as an homage to Severus. I used gold glitter fabric for the skull - doesn't show up as well in photo.
