A Year of Doom - Multi-fandom Bookcase Quilt Along DESIGN INVITATIONAL (week 17)

Hello, friends!

We're taking a short break from new patterns for our Multi-Fandom Bookcase Quilt Along to invite you, our quilting community, to join us in creating Bookcase Quilt Layout Designs for our Design Invitational!

We'll be back next week with LOADS more fun fandom designs for your bookcase quilt!

This Design Invitational is completely different from what we've done in the past. Please read the information below carefully and let us know if you have any questions.

We are inviting you, our fandom quilting community, share share a QUILT layout design!

We have hundreds of bookcase quilt blocks and thought it would fun to share the creative ways for our quilting community to assemble their blocks!

What is a quilt layout?

The Project of Doom - A Harry Potter Quilt (2015 Layout 1)
A quilt layout is full assembly instructions to use with our quilt blocks. Please check out the original Project of Doom quilt layouts above to get a better idea of what we mean.

Whether you are an experienced quilter or brand new, we encourage your participation! Any size quilt design is welcome. Check out our participation rules below for more information.

  • Quilt layout designs must be original and created by the submitting designer. Designs may not use any part of a another designer's pattern, including, but not limited to, those designs shared on fandominstitches.com. 
  • Designs based on other, non-quilt artwork (including fan art) must include written permission from the artist. 
  • Patterns can be any piecing technique (paper pieced, hand embroidered, applique, etc.).
  • Patterns must be free to access and stay that way. All FiS patterns are free for personal & non-profit use only to comply with copyright and intellectual property laws.
  • All pattern, illustrations & instructions should be saved in ONE DOCUMENT as a .pdf.   
  • For helpful information, including software suggestions, see Be A Fandom in Stitches Designer.
