Harry Potter Quilt Slytherin' Block


Happy Saturday!

This week's Harry Potter block is the Slytherin' House crest.



I was going to do a different extra, rather than a crest this week, but my One Drive wasn't syncing and this was the fastest block to get the post together for, to keep us on track. So, another crest it is! I think next week I will try one other than a crest. So far the extras I've seen popping up in the sew along group are Luna and Dobby, 9 3/4, and I got a message that included a house sword (which I didn't know existed!), and I had a request for the Deathly Hallows block. I think maybe Deathly Hallows for next week!

But for now, let's get cutting on Slytherin'. This one has a few clip and flips but only four colors.
