Fantastic Beasts Layout and Design Invitational

blog logo.jpg

Welcome to our final week of the  Fantastic Beasts Quilt Along!

Fantastic Beasts 
& Magical Creatures

In this post we have the layout and the invitational blocks below. And the announcement of our winner for the invitational.

 The colors for the quilt layout is Cranberry, Blue and Gold. These are the colors for Ilvermorny, the North American wizarding school. Even though the school has 4 houses, all the students wear the same colors. Please feel free to use your own color choices. 

For the full layout instructions please click on the picture below.

Jennifer Rowles have made an example of the quilt top for me. Instead of the starred sashing she put a star in the yellow corner pieces. I really think it turned out pretty awesome.

The one thing I need to mention, is that I originally planned to make only 10 x 10" blocks. So how do you add in the 10 x 20" blocks?
First you need to add 2" background fabric to your 10 x 20" block on either end. Or 1.5" background to both ends of the block to make it fit into the space of 2 other blocks. The background fabric is filling in the space that would have been sashing in between to of the blocks.  I will show how to do this in the full layout instruction that you will be downloading.

And now for the design invitational.
Here is what some of our awesome designers have come up with for the invitational.

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-on or transfers.

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


Starts next week!

Goblin King: A Labyrinth Quilt & Stitch Along is a collaborative event with patterns designed by many of our awesome Fandom in Stitches Designers, hosted by Jennifer Ofenstein. Patterns will post weekly January 4 through May 2017. Each week, participants will have the choice of a paper pieced or embroidered block, or mix & match as desired!
