Harry Potter Quilt: Professor Trelawney Quilt Block Tutorial


Hello there!

I'm back today with another extra block for the Harry Potter quilt- along that we did in 2019. I think this is extra block 28? There are lots of extras. More extras than were in the original quilt. haha And still coming!

The latest is Professor Trelawney. I just love how she turned out. I didn't really remember what she looked like in the movies, or what she was described like in the books, so I went googling. Here's my interpretation. She makes me smile. Everything about her. Her big hair, her artsy headband, her flowy dress, boots, and her GLASSES. THE GLASSES! haha! I hope you like her too. I think she's one of my favorites.

I have to admit, I didn't remember what she looked like in the books or movies. I had to Google too. Love the big hair and the way you managed to fit the wand in. Thanks for sharing.
