Hi all!  I have been working on designing a Harry Potter quilt for over a year now.  I finally finished it in time to show it at Phoenix Rising in New Orleans last month.

New! Get free patterns for these blocks at Fandom In Stitches!

ETA: June 2011 - As Deathly Hallow pt. 2 approaches, my quilt has recently been getting loads of random press, some of which is linked back to this post.

Cool, thanks! 

The entire quilt is paper pieced, all designed by me, all machine pieced and quilted by me.  I echo quilted each square.  Smiley

 Shocked  I am in LOVE!!  that is the most amazing thing ever!!!  I have never even had enough focus to finish a quilt for my cat, but that has inspired me to brush up my quilting skills so I can work up that that.  I hope you are able to get that book going, let us know when it gets published!!

Thank you so much!  It's been a labor of love.  I really worked on it one square at a time and then went into overdrive to finish it in time to show it in May.  I couldn't be happier with it.

I'm writing the book, one way or another.  My fingers and toes are crossed that I can find someone willing to work with Warner Bros. because I'm sure that will be an issue.
