I'm starting to think there are just too many possibilities! We for sure have enough blocks for two quilts already! But it's loads of fun drawing them up, so I'll keep sharing as I get them ready and they'll be linked over on the sew along page forevermore. :D Thanks for popping in! If you're just finding these blocks, all of the info for the sew along quilt and links to the block tutorials can be found on the sew along page *HERE*. Don't forget to tag your blocks on social media with #hpqal2019 and #harrypotterquilt. 

Happy Stitching!
