Harry Potter Quilt Along - Week 13

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

Welcome to LUCKY THIRTEEN and that's no joke! It's the thirteenth week in our  Harry Potter Bookcase Quilt Along AND it also happens to be the Fred & George's birthday!

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 as time permits.

And now... Week Thirteen!
2015 PoD Update Block 13 - Monster Book of Monsters

Week 13 - 2015 Version

Why, hello there, Monster Book of Monsters! How are ya?

This is my interpretation of the Monster Book, inspired a bit by the movie version. I always imagined it to be a big, flapping book, and loved the addition those ominous looking teeth and the bits of fur hanging off the edges.

Today, I'm also including a special addition for those of you working on a Dark Arts quilt: Quirrell's Purple Turban. I love it and find it entirely creepy, all at the same time!

Enjoy!

Please send pattern corrections to ofenjen@fandominstitches.com

The variation below is included in the pattern update.  
Please note that this is an entire block substitution.
2015 PoD Update Block 13 - Quirrell's Turban
***Quirrell's Purple Turban***

PoD-Week 13

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


March 2015 PoD QAL Participation Prize

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

The March winner will receive a 10" x 34" piece of licensed Harry Potter themed fabric, a Fandom in Stitches button and enough Jelly Bean fabric for his or her Project of Doom quilt!


Winner to be announced Tuesday, April 7, 2015!

Since this prize is coming out of my own stash, only 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. 


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!




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!


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.
