Hagrid's Flowery Pink Umbrella

Supplement Pattern for:
tested by Loretta Sitkiewicz Nardi & Jo Minvielle
10" x 25" paper pieced

For years now, we've had quilters asking for a pattern for Hagrid's Umbrella to supplement the Project of Doom. Quite a few people have made their own versions, but we've never had a pattern submitted for sharing to the website.

Since it kept coming up, I designed one for you. 



This is my daughter's umbrella. I borrowed it for a little photo shot and then asked my fellow designers & pattern testers which photo they liked best. This one won by a long shot.

Notice my Arthur Weasley stitch in the background. Pattern available on the Harry Potter Archive under Quotes. :P


This gives you an idea as to how this pattern can be used. I hope you enjoy it!

Get these patterns and more:



I had two wonderful testers for this pattern!

This one was made by Loretta Sitkiewicz Nardi.


This one was made by Jo Minvielle.

Difficulty level 1
  • Make 1 of these for your layout
  • Remember that the background will be the suitcase fabric (outside of suitcase, not the inside), it could be brown or any leather looking fabric like what Jennifer Rowles did for her quilt. 

 Signature block.

If you have been sewing along on any of the Quilt Along events, you will have seen that some of the designers releasing a signature block during the event.

What is a signature block?
It is a block, that you can sew and embroider with your details on it. You can use this as your quilt label and you can send this block to the designer, who collects all of these blocks from all over the world to make into a memory quilt for themselves.

Do I have to make one?
Absolutely not. This is a special request, and is not compulsory at all. We would love to get one though, it makes such a nice memory to add into a quilt.

What do I do?
Download the pattern. Sew it up. And embroider / stencil your name, where you are from and the #FBQAL2 somewhere on the block and send it off to the address that is printed on the pattern. Easy peazy.
