Thank you Harry Potter

Jack 1

The pattern for this quilt can be found here (Jack's Blocks pattern)

This quilt was designed and created for one of my little nephews.  His sister received her quilt over a month ago and I hear he has been patiently waiting for his.  (which reminds me… I never photographed his sister’s quilt.) 

My sis-in-law chose the fabrics (love them!) and found an inspiration quilt for me to use.  I really love how this quilt turned out.  I hope Jack does!

And why did I title this post “Thank you Harry Potter” you ask?  Because this quilt has been waiting for it’s binding for a few weeks.  I had the binding machine stitched to the front of the quilt but I didn’t have the time to sit and do the hand stitching to the back…  that is until my son decided to re-watch all of the Harry Potter movies.  We are eagerly awaiting the final movie and I thought his Harry Potter movie festival idea was a good one.  So I sat and finished this binding while watching The Sorcerer’s Stone. 

Thank you Harry Potter.  I have a feeling you will be helping me finish several quilt bindings in the next week.

  1. wow I love this one! the colours just work with the balance of the squares! I find working with browns really difficult at times but they work really well with the light greens and aqua tones in your quilt.

  2. I agree with you about the color brown. Not usually one of my favorite colors to work with, but it is great in this quilt.

  3. andy did you make up the pattern? love it! great colors. and the polka dot binding is yummy.

  4. I did make up the pattern. Now I just need to find time to type it up and make it official! :) I love me a polka dot binding too.

  5. LOVE this quilt. Can't wait for the pattern - I'll be first in line! I already have your elf hat quilt on my to-do list!

  6. Did you ever come up with the pattern, I would love to get started on this right away.

  7. jahlenius - I am so very close! Give me a few days and I'll have it ready to go.
