Well, merry people!

Before we start our Tuesday fun, a little housekeeping: All Pattern Archive pages have been moved. Pattern Archives are the pages like Harry Potter, Animated/Children, etc. listed in the menu at the top of every Fandom In Stitches page. These pages have thumbnails and direct links to all FiS patterns. The Archives themselves have not changed, but the URLs have. This is our solution to a long-term problem with Blogger randomly renaming page addresses. Our current set-up should avoid that in the future. Please use the directory above to find what you're looking for (Harry Potter, Sci-Fi, etc.). We are sincerely sorry for any inconvenience.

The last There and Back Again pattern has been posted, but the fun isn't quite over yet! You can still win our last monthly TABABOM flickr prize, a beautiful Hobbit-themed pendant from SarahAnneLily Pendants! See details below.

For icing on our Hobbit cake, we are thrilled to announce the TABABOM participation Grand Prize from our good friend Amber of Amber's Originals, a gorgeous, custom-created lapghan! Want to win this memento of our journey? It's simple: just finish your There and Back Again quilt (or quilt top) using all 13 BOM designs. You can use the layout we provided or one of your own creation. Take a photo and add it to our flickr group no later than November 12, 2012. The winner will be announced Tuesday, November 13!

Details coming soon!


  1. When does the paper backing come off the blocks in the assembly process?
    (FantasyFan - it won't let me login)

    1. I personally like to leave my paper on until the sashing is in place. The paper helps to stabilize any bias edges you may have from paper piecing.

      Sorry about the Blogger login problem. I honestly have no idea!

    2. Thanks! I've got it about half put together now, and I've decided to add some more silver embellishment to some of the blocks to help pull them together more. I have to say "thank you" for such a fun project. I've learned a lot and had a blast doing it.

    3. I am absolutely thrilled to hear that! It really was a fun project. There's nothing quite like quilting along with other fans of one of your favorite things!
