Game of Thrones

Today we have the second Iron Throne.  This is a large block - 20 inches but more truly represents George RR Martins vision for the Throne.

The Iron Throne - Large Detailed




George RR Martin blogged that this artwork by artist Marc Simonetti  was closer to his vision than any other artist to tackle it. He said "this will be the reference I give to every other artist tackling a throne room scene. This Iron Throne is massive. Ugly. Assymetric. It's a throne made by blacksmiths hammering together half-melted, broken, twisted swords, wrenched from the hands of dead men or yielded up by defeated foes... a symbol of conquest... it has the steps I describe, and the height. From on top, the king dominates the throne room. And there are thousands of swords in it, not just a few.  This Iron Throne is scary. And not at all a comfortable seat, just as Aegon intended."

Tradition and Honor

Star Trek


Designed by Vanda Chittenden
Tested By Diane Knox
10" paper pieced

The next pattern in our Star Trek Pattern Series.

Honor, something the Romulans valued the most.
The Romulan Honor Blade (Romulan: dathe'anofv-sen) is a traditional weapon. 
Honor blades are passed down through Romulan families, and are ritually sharpened. 

I love the shape of this weapon, it just looks deadly and mean. The Romulans used these weapons to behead any opponents who stands in their way or betrays them.

Please visit again for more new patterns, in the Star Series.

2015 PoD Update Block 17

Of all the shops, in all the alleys, in all the world. I want to go to this one!

Continuing the theme from last week (remember the Pygmy Puff?), today we bring you a fun block that includes a goody bag from none other than Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes!

You'll find the actual bag part of the updated version of this pattern has been altered quite a lot from the 2011 version. The new piecing is much simpler!

For those of you more Dark Arts inclined, I included one of the most requested items on my list since posting the original quilt in 2011...

Please send pattern corrections to ofenjen@fandominstitches.com


The variation below is included in the pattern update. 

2015 PoD Update Block 17 (Death Eater Mask variation)

***Variation: Death Eater Mask***




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 time permits.

flickr prize


April 2015 PoD Particiation Prize

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



Winner to be announced Tuesday, May 5, 2015!

Since this prize is coming out of my own stash, only photos of blocks made from my original patterns (unaltered/unedited) PoD 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. 

The April winner will receive two pieces piece of licensed Harry Potter themed fabric, a collectible Goblet of Fire Sticker Book,  a Fandom in Stitches button and enough Jelly Bean fabric for his or her Project of Doom quilt!
  • 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.
  • Get help with paper piecing, embroidery and more on our Quilting Help page!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!

Join us TOMORROW for Week 17 in our Project of Doom Quilt Along

Keep reading to see our April prizes!


Last week, it was brought to our attention that a vendor at a comic expo was illegally selling Fandom In Stitches patterns. Our patterns are NEVER for sale. If you see someone selling FiS patterns anywhere, virtual or brick & mortar, they are doing so without our legal consent. We are waiting for new information on the situation and we thank everyone that has reached out to help with this situation.
