Harry Potter Quilt Along - Week 5

Welcome to week five of our Harry Potter Bookcase Quilt Along! Pat yourself on the back, once you make this block, you will have completed your first row!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.

And now... Week Five!


Block 5
All blocks finish 10" (10 1/2" unfinished)


The biggest change in today's update is a minor correction to the perspective on the leaning book. I intentionally made many of the books wonky, but this one has always been just a little wonkier than I intended!

You will also find the small addition with the background option above the yellow book. If you'd like, it can go all the way to the top of the block by using book fabric instead of background fabric.

This is a fun one to use great fabrics and BIG titles!


Block 5 Dark Arts colors
Color variation...Dark Artsy!


POD-Week 05




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 we go!

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.

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'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!

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!




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.
