Fantastic Beasts Quilt Along - Week 11

blog logo.jpg

Welcome to week eleven 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 51
Knarl - Level 3
10 x 10 inch paper pieced pattern excluding seam allowance
Designed and Tested by Vanda Chittenden


The Knarl (northern Europe and America) is usually mistaken for a hedgehog by Muggles. The two species are indeed indistinguishable except for one important behavioral difference: If food is left out in the garden for a hedgehog, it will accept and enjoy the gift; if food is offered to a Knarl, on the other hand, it will assume that the householder is attempting to lure it into a trap and will savage that householder’s garden plants or garden ornaments. Many a Muggle child has been accused of vandalism when an offended Knarl was the real culprit.

 Block 52
Bowtruckle - Level 2

10 x 10 Inch paper pieced pattern excluding seam allowance
Designed by Vanda Chittenden
Tested by Amber Lowery


The Bowtruckle is a tree-guardian creature found mainly in the west of England, southern Germany, and certain Scandinavian forests. It is immensely difficult to spot, being small (maximum eight inches in height) and apparently made of bark and twigs with two small brown eyes. The Bowtruckle, which eats insects, is a peaceable and intensely shy creature but if the tree in which it lives is threatened, it has been known to leap down upon the woodcutter or tree-surgeon attempting to harm its home and gouge at their eyes with its long, sharp fingers. An offering of woodlice will placate the Bowtruckle long enough to let a witch or wizard remove wand-wood from its tree.

Block 53
Occamy - Level 4
10 x 10 inch Paper pieced pattern excluding seam allowance
Designed and Tested by Vanda Chittenden


The Occamy is found in the Far East and India. A plumed, two-legged winged creature with a serpentine body, the Occamy may reach a length of fifteen feet. It feeds mainly on rats and birds, though has been known to carry off monkeys. The Occamy is aggressive to all who approach it, particularly in defense of its eggs, whose shells are made of the purest, softest silver.


Block 54
Demiguise - Level 4

10 x 10 inch paper pieced pattern excluding seam allowance
Designed and Tested by



The Demiguise is found in the Far East, though only with great difficulty, for this beast is able to make itself invisible when threatened, and can be seen only by wizards skilled in its capture. The Demiguise is a peaceful herbivorous beast, something like a graceful ape in appearance, with large, black, doleful eyes more often than not hidden by its hair. The whole body is covered with long, fine, silky, silvery hair. Demiguise pelts are highly valued as the hair may be spun into Invisibility Cloaks.


Block 55
Kappa - Level 4

10 x 10 Inch paper pieced pattern excluding seam allowance
Designed and Tested by Vanda Chittenden



The Kappa is a Japanese water demon that inhabits shallow ponds and rivers. Often said to look like a monkey with fish scales instead of fur, it has a hollow in the top of its head in which it carries water. The Kappa feeds on human blood but may be persuaded not to harm a person if it is thrown a cucumber with that person’s name carved into it. In confrontation, a wizard should trick the Kappa into bowing – if it does so, the water in the hollow of its head will run out, depriving it of all its strength.


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.
