Harry Potter Quilt: Dobby


I missed last week since we were on our way home from a road trip vacation. So this week, I'm going to try to post a few blocks as I get them together. First up is my version of Dobby. I had been working on him a bit from the start since someone had asked about a Dobby. I decided to go ahead and post him.



BUT, if you don't care for him, there's another Dobby option in the sew along group on FB by Carin that you can find *here*. You might have to scroll down a bit, but it's adorable! I love everyone's personalized blocks! You can find so much creativity shared in the sew along group! You are ALL so amazing and creative. I love it!

Okay, so let's get cutting!
