A Year of Doom - Multi-fandom Bookcase Quilt Along Begins 1 Week From Today!

Beginning January 13 2021 
we will be celebrating
the 10th anniversary
 of both Fandom in Stitches
AND The Project of Doom!!! 

Hello, friends!

It's one week until we start our year-long journey building our very own Project of Doom / Multi-Fandom Bookcase Quilts!

This quilt along is a little different than our past events - you choose which blocks to make and skip the rest!

All patterns use paper piecing. If you haven't tried it yet, please check out this free full-length tutorial or use any tutorial that works for you.

A few patterns also include hand embroidery and applique. 

There are lots of great tutorials out there and we're happy to help get you to the information you need if you get stuck along the way.


For 10" blocks only, you'll need 1/2 of yard of background fabric PER 5 blocks. 

This is a generous estimate and will change based on how many items are in your blocks. More items = less background fabric needed. We like to err on the side of too much!

Please note that this is for background fabric for the blocks ONLY and does not include borders, shelves, or other fabric you might like to use. 

We highly recommend using a non-directional tonal for your background fabric. Stripes or other directional fabric (a print that is up and down or side to side) will make paper pieced blocks much, much trickier. 

If you aren't sure how many blocks you might want to make and don't want to buy loads of fabric to start, consider using a blender that's not likely to disappear any time soon (something like Moda Marbles or other "basics."). This only really becomes a problem when PoDs (Projects of Doom) turn into UFOs (UnFinished Objects)! When in doubt, talk to the staff at Your Local Quilt Store!

Fabric for books and objects can be scraps, remnants, fat quarters, pre-cuts, or whatever else your heart desires. You'll need small amounts in a variety of colors for each block you make. Color choices and styles are entirely up to the quilter! Hot Tip - Check with local quilt store for scrap bags & remnants! Have quilting friends? Ask if they have scraps they can share! 


Support for this group 

(photo sharing, chat, etc.)

will be hosted in our general 

Facebook Group

All skill levels are welcome!

Facebook participation is optional. All Quilt Along posts will be posted right here on fandominstitches.com. 



We recommend thinking about what size quilt you want before getting started. The following quilt layouts ALL use 10" blocks and can be combined with our Bookcase Quilt Blocks. If you're feeling wild and free, you can always get started and come back to this later! 

The following quilt layouts (finishing instructions) were created by Fandom in Stitches designers and are free for your personal use. 

Each of these uses 10" blocks (10 1/2" unfinished) and can be used with your Bookcase Blocks. You're welcome to use one of our patterns or use the design of your choice to finish your bookcase.

Our Design Invitational for this event will be for ALTERNATIVE FINISHING INSTRUCTIONS. More details about that will be coming soon!
