One of the many, many things I'd like to do over the course of the next year is to update all of my own patterns here on Fandom In Stitches that were drafted before 2011. Since the very end of 2010, I've been drafting in EQ7 and I find those newer patterns to be cleaner and easier to read than the ones I drafted in drawing software all those ages ago. 

I've already updated all of the Harry Potter Alphabet patterns and the Project of Doom was designed entirely in EQ7. The same is true for all of my paper pieced patterns and quilt layouts over the last three years.

So here's a start, for your enjoyment, the Hogwarts House Crests, originally designed by yours truly WAY BACK in 2005 for my first Harry Potter quilt!

The patterns include instructions to make the Crests with or without corners. 

Want a block that's bigger than 5"? Just print and enlarge to 200% for a 10" block. For other sizes, use this handy chart over at The Quilted Snail.
