Title: Harry Potter Marauders Quilt
Post by: noelle on March 05, 2016 09:59:02 AM
hi guys! i made this lap quilt for the Back to Hogwarts Swap (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=440773.0). my original idea was to make an HP-themed Baltimore Album quilt (i.e. all hand-turned applique) but for time and sanity reasons had to simplify the plan along the way. so instead of all of puzzled_penguin's favorite HP things, i focused on the marauders, which were the first blocks i'd finished.

this is the first full-size-ish quilt i've done. thankfully my mom is an experienced quilter, so i was calling her up 5 times a day for advice  :D
it's about 60"x60", with a flannel backing.

sorry about the dark/fuzzy pics. i was taking photos at midnight before packing it up


...and instead of hand-appliqueing the house animals, went with pieced color blocks


Prongs & Lily:


Padfoot:


Moony:


Wormtail:


Hogwarts Castle:


Footprints:


Back:

As the proud owner of this quilt, I can't describe how beautiful it is. I actually invited people around just to show it off.

Absolutely amazing!!  I can't even imagine this being a simplified version of anything - it's already so detailed!  Wonderful!!
