hi guys! i made this lap quilt for the Back to Hogwarts Swap. 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  Cheesy
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

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.
