Fantastic Beasts Quilt Along - week 7

blog logo.jpg

Welcome to week seven 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 31
Ashwinder - Level 3
10 x 10" paper pieced pattern excluding seam allowance
Designed by Vanda Chittenden
Tested by Amber Lowery
The Ashwinder is created when a magical fire is allowed to burn unchecked for too long. A thin, pale-grey serpent with glowing red eyes, it will rise from the embers of an unsupervised fire and slither away into the shadows of the dwelling in which it finds itself, leaving an ashy trail behind it. The Ashwinder lives for only an hour and during that time seeks a dark and secluded spot in which to lay its eggs, after which it will collapse into dust. Ashwinder eggs are brilliant red and give off intense heat. They will ignite the dwelling within minutes if not found and frozen with a suitable charm. Any wizard realizing that one or more Ashwinders are loose in the house must trace them immediately and locate the nest of eggs. Once frozen, these eggs are of great value for use in Love Potions and may be eaten whole as a cure for ague. Ashwinders are found worldwide.

10 x 20" paper pieced pattern excluding seam allowance
Designed by Vanda Chittenden
Tested by Amber Lowery
Originating in Greece, the hippocampus has the head and forequarters of a horse, and the tail and hindquarters of a giant fish. Though the species is usually to be found in the Mediterranean, a superb blue roan specimen was caught by merpeople off the shores of Scotland in 1949 and subsequently domesticated by them. The hippocampus lays large, semi-transparent eggs through which the Tadfoal may be seen.
Block 33
Moke - Level 3
10 x 10" Paper pieced pattern excluding seam allowance
Designed by Vanda Chittenden
Tested by Amber Lowery
The Moke is a silver-green lizard reaching up to ten inches in length and is found throughout Britain and Ireland. It has the ability to shrink at will and has consequently never been noticed by Muggles. Moke skin is highly prized among wizards for use as moneybags and purses, as the scaly material will contract at the approach of a stranger, just as its owner did; Moke-skin moneybags are therefore very difficult for thieves to locate.
Block 34
Shrake - Level 3

10 x 10" paper pieced pattern excluding seam allowance
Designed by Vanda Chittenden
Tested by Amber Lowery
A fish covered entirely in spines and found in the Atlantic Ocean. The first shoal of Shrake is believed to have been created as a revenge against Muggle fisherfolk who had insulted a team of sailing wizards in the early 1800s. From that day on, any Muggles fishing in that particular patch of sea have found their nets come up ripped and empty owing to the Shrakes swimming deep below.

Block 35
Streeler - Level 3
 10 x 10" paper pieced pattern excluding seam allowance
Designed by Vanda Chittenden
Tested by Amber Lowery
The Streeler is a giant snail that changes color on an hourly basis and deposits behind it a trail so venomous that it shrivels and burns all vegetation over which it passes. The Streeler is native to several African countries, though it has been successfully raised by wizards in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. It is kept as a pet by those who enjoy its kaleidoscopic color changes, and its venom is one of the few substances known to kill Horklumps.
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.
