harry potter quilt: Fang

It's time for another Harry Potter extra quilt block! Today, it's Fang. He is extra block #15!



I have a special place in my heart for big dogs. We lost our dog, Buster (a Newfoundland) a couple of years ago. He is so missed!💖




Anyways, I digress. Back to Fang! I LOVED the dog that played Fang in the movies, so when I had a request for a Fang block, I was 100% onboard!

Here are the details for my interpretation of Fang! He uses six colors.





Fabric A (background):

Just wondering if I am the only one that the *CLICK HERE* link isn't work for?

Another wonderful block. Thank you. I think I will use this as a pillow for a hostess gift for christmas for my sister in law. She rescues Newfoundlands. She had two black ones and now one black and one black and white. They are the sweetest things.

Click here doesn't work for me too
