Throwback Thursday: Harry Potter Style


Welcome back to Throwback Thursday on Fandom In Stitches! Each week, we revisit our fandom roots by sharing an updated version of Harry Potter patterns from way back before FiS was A Thing!

This is one of the very few Harry Potter-themed blocks I personally designed did not spring to life right out of my very own noggin. 

Instead, it was inspired by this now-classic image from Warner Brothers:

Like all patterns shared during Throwback Thursday, this pattern was originally shared on Harry Potter Paper Piecing, a Livejournal community, and the predecessor to Fandom in Stitches.

For the most up-to-date pattern links for all patterns,

A famous Abbey

Downton Abbey by Alida-TweLoQ
16" x 16" (finished) paper pieced & embroidery

Hello everyone, Alida here!

Another pattern from the Request page! The famous Downton Abbey!!

It's a bigger pattern than the usual, because I wanted to keep the proportions of the text/building as in the official logo. I hope you like it!




Until next time...
Happy sewing!!

Join us next week for the final installment of our Princess Bride themed quilt & stitch along patterns! Want more for your AYW quilt? Join us for the As You Wish Design Invitational!

A Reminder:
The As You Wish Design Invitational
  • Design an original Princess Bride-themed quilt block pattern using any technique to supplement the As You Wish designs (all designs will be online by April 23, 2014). Hint: Your FiS Designers have covered all major characters.
  • Patterns must be 5" (5 1/2" unfinished). We've built extra spaces in both quilt layouts just for the Design Invitational patterns (see images below this week's AYW patterns).
  • Test your pattern and take a photo. Only tested patterns will be included on FiS.
  • Post the photo of your design and a link to your PDF pattern* in our flickr group no later than Tuesday, May 6, 2014. (*If you don't have your own blog or website, not to worry, just email your pattern to ofenjen@fandominstitches.com and we'll post it for you!)
  • PDF patterns can be hand drawn or created using graphic design software. For more information see Be A Designer.
  • Tag your flickr photo "AYW DESIGN" so we know to include it. (Use the quotes as shown so that both words will be included in the same tag.)
  • On Wednesday, May 7, 2014, all Design Invitational patterns will be posted right here on Fandom In Stitches to share with our quilting community.
  • Submitted designs will be included in special drawing for an XXL Miracle Max t-shirt (design shown below!)
