Fantastic Beasts Quilt Along - Week 6

blog logo.jpg

Welcome to week six of our Fantastic Beasts Quilt Along!


Block descriptions from text by J.K. Rowling. Learn more at Pottermore 
& from Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them.

For general information and fabric requirements, please look at the bottom of the post, below the patterns.

Block 26
Lobalug - Level 3
10 x 10" paper pieced pattern excluding seam allowance
Designed by Vanda Chittenden
Tested by Amber Lowery
The Lobalug is found at the bottom of the North Sea. It is a simple creature, ten inches long, comprising a rubbery spout and a venom sac. When threatened, the Lobalug contracts its venom sac, blasting the attacker with poison. Merpeople use the Lobalug as a weapon and wizards have been known to extract its poison for use in potions, though this practice is strictly controlled.
 Block 27
Fire crab - Level 3
10 x 10" paper pieced pattern excluding seam allowance
Designed by Vanda Chittenden
Tested by Amber Lowery
(Amber decided to make up a patchwork piece first to use in the shell of the crab to make it look like jewels, it looks awesome)
Despite its name, the fire crab greatly resembles a large tortoise with a heavily jeweled shell. In its native Fiji, a stretch of coast has been turned into a reservation for its protection, not only against Muggles, who might be tempted by its valuable shell, but also against unscrupulous wizards, who use the shells as highly prized cauldrons. The fire crab does, however, have its own defense mechanism: It shoots flames from its rear end when attacked. Fire crabs are exported as pets but a special license is necessary.
Block 28
Plimpy - Level 3
10 x 10" Paper pieced pattern excluding seam allowance
Designed by Vanda Chittenden
Tested by Amber Lowery
The Plimpy is a spherical, mottled fish distinguished by its two long legs ending in webbed feet. It inhabits deep lakes where it will prowl the bottom in search of food, preferring water snails. The Plimpy is not particularly dangerous, though it will nibble the feet and clothing of swimmers. It is considered a pest by merpeople, who deal with it by tying its rubbery legs in a knot; the Plimpy then drifts away, unable to steer, and cannot return until it has untied itself, which may take hours.

10 x 10" paper pieced pattern excluding seam allowance
Designed by Vanda Chittenden
Tested by Amber Lowery
The Niffler is a British beast. Fluffy, black, and long-snouted, this burrowing creature has a predilection for anything glittery. Nifflers are often kept by goblins to burrow deep into the earth for treasure. Though the Niffler is gentle and even affectionate, it can be destructive to belongings and should never be kept in a house. Nifflers live in lairs up to twenty feet below the surface and produce six to eight young in a litter.
Block 30
Nogtail - Level 3
 10 x 10" paper pieced pattern excluding seam allowance
Designed by Vanda Chittenden
Tested by Amber Lowery
Nogtails are demons found in rural areas right across Europe,Russia, and America. They resemble stunted piglets with long legs, thick, stubby tails, and narrow black eyes. The Nogtail will creep into a sty and suckle an ordinary sow alongside her own young. The longer the Nogtail is left undetected and the bigger it grows, the longer the blight on the farm into which it has entered. The Nogtail is exceptionally fast and difficult to catch, though if chased beyond the boundaries of a farm by a pure white dog, it will never return. The Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures (Pest Sub-Division) keeps a dozen albino bloodhounds for this purpose.
Stars
Stars

2 x 2" excluding seam allowance
Paper Pieced
Designed by Vanda Chittenden
Tested by Amber Lowery

Once put together the sashing will be 2 x 10" excluding seam allowance

It is your choice where you want your stars to show up. Example below.
The layout at the end of the quilt along, allows for the stars to be on any side of each beast. 
Or just leave the stars out, it is absolutely your choice.
Signature Block Pattern.

If you've participated in events like this with us before, then you know about  the signature blocks! I'd like to invite everyone participating in the 2016 Fantastic Beasts Quilt Along to share a block for a special 2016 Signature Quilt. This quilt is my way of remembering everyone that quilted along in 2016.

You can send your signature block at any time, you do not need to finish the whole quilt first.

Hand or machine embroidery, printed fabric, fabric pen, marker, or stenciled with fabric paint/pen, etc. are all acceptable. Please, no iron-ons or transfers.

You can use any scraps from your bins for this block. 

General information!

All beasts are rated from 1* to 5***** in danger levels. 
Reminder! You do not have to make all the patterns, choose which ones you like.
With every beast pattern, the danger level will be shown. If you choose to do the paper pieced star sashing, you can find the pattern below the beasts patterns.
The pattern pieces is not colored in, they have been left blank so that you can choose your own colors. A color chart has been provided for a reference.


All patterns will also be added to the Fantastic Beasts archive here on Fandom In Stitches.
