Harry Potter Week 2: Cupboard Under the Stairs

Happy Sew Along Saturday #2! If you had a question from last week, and I didn't get to answer it, just leave a comment, along with your email address. Some of you don't have an email address linked to your account so I wasn't able to answer. If you leave an email address, I'll do my best!



This weekend, I'm sharing the instructions for the Cupboard Under the Stairs. This block only uses four colors, and is significantly easier than last week's block! Yay! Only a couple of clip & flip units, and one of them you can skip entirely if you'd rather sew on a black button for the doorknob! 😁

Let's dive in!

I have two questions. 1. Is there going to be a PDF for this block or is it already there and I am missing it? 2. I plan on embroidering a black door knob using a french knot instead of a black piece of fabric. I think it would be faster to use a 6 1/2 inch x 9 1/2 inch piece of yellow fabric for the door and then of course put the stitch and flip on both top corners. Am i figuring out the 6 1/2 inch cut correctly..does that finish at 6 inches? Thank you...love this block! email: lisa0116@yahoo.com

I bought the fabric kit from Fat Quarter Shop. Wondering if there’s an “oops factor” figured in? After cutting everything for the Harry Potter block I ordered some dies for my AccuQuilt to make cutting easier for the rest of the blocks. However, some fabric gets wasted that way. Wondered if I’m going to have enough if I’m really really careful or if I should purchase more of the fabrics while they’re available.
