Harry Potter SewAlong

Welcome to the Harry Potter SewAlong page! This is where you'll find all of the info and block links for this 20-block twin size (77 x 96") quilt made up of 18" blocks... 

..and a few extra blocks, and a huge surprise for the back will come along at the end!

Fabric requirements & info: 

Downloadable pdf list of fabric requirements including the background amount is coming soon here! See this link! ↡ 

Harry Potter Sew Along Fabric Req. and Info

For those of you who would like to use the colors that I've picked, there will be a link going live by the second week of January, possibly the first week of January, to where you can get the fabrics in a precut bundle. (Thank you Fat Quarter Shop!) 

The bundle is here! The link is live, and the kit can be purchased by clicking HERE!

 **Background & binding won't be included in the precut bundle/kit, as people might wish to choose a different background and change up the binding. But if you like the Moda Bella Mauve background that is shown in the image above, you can purchase it by clicking here.

Each block post will also be downloadable as a pdf for those that won't be sewing near a computer. Just print it out and take with you! The link to each download will be at the end of that week's block post.

The format: one block tutorial every Saturday starting on January 19, 2019 in tandem with Sew Fresh Quilts, who is also doing a Harry Potter sew along this year, so we decided to do them together and cross post and link our blocks! (Tons of options!) You will find each block's tutorial link below, going live as they are posted. 

**One other note: be sure you're familiar with the scant quarter inch seam. If not, no worries, you can read about it here.
                                  **There will be fun giveaways along the way!**

Sashing Info: The sashing strips are as follows: 

Cut (25) 1 1/2 x 18 1/2" strips
Cut or piece (6) 1 1/2 x 77 1/2" strips. 

These strips will leave a 1" inch sash between each block, and also a built-in 1" inch border all the way around when it's sewn together.

Any other suggestions?

Also my now-12 yr. old son has been asking for an epic quilt back, Oh no! haha What have I started!? 😖😂💗I'll post a pic of the plan for the back of the quilt when it's all ready. But there's plenty of time for that!

Come sew along!


So excited for this - completeing my fabric pull for a mash-up of the two Potter quilts!

I love Creative Life's idea of doing a mashup of the two quilts! How fun would that be?! Can't wait to see everyone's versions of the Harry Potter quilts. Happy New Year, Kelli!

Julie said...

I’m so excited for this. I have WAY too much on my plate for the coming year but other projects are getting pushed aside for this one. This will be a great gift for my Harry Potter obsessed (adult!) son.

Alexia said...

Could you do a deathly Hallows block? I told myself that i would not start anything new and get my projects done, but i will have to start this. Looks amazing.

My son is a huge Potterhead and will turn 12 on June 26th. Wouldn't this be the perfect birthday gift?

Alma said...

Looks like FUN!!!!!

So excited I'm going to do this for next yr gift for friend and possibly second one for me.

Wendy Link said...

I’m going to try to make two at a time so both daughter & dauter’n law get one?!

Allison said...

I am FAR too excited for this! I am still very much a beginner at quilting, but HP is my favorite. I am looking forward to trying out a new project my daughter and I can admire forever!

Jana said...

I have several adult kids that are Potterheads that would love this. Kit is ordered.

Margo said...

I am so excited to make this quilt. I have a granddaughter who is really into Harry Potter right now, so this is perfect timing!!

Chelsea said...

Thank you so much for sharing this. Does anyone have suggestions for alternative background colors? (I am genuinely awful at color selection.). I have three boys and would like to give each one their own HP quilt as a gift when they finish reading the series. I would like each of them to have a unique background color though. Love the current background color for one of them. What else might look good?

aloha said...

Just ordered this kit for my grandson! So excited!

phuffman39 said...

Is this a paper pieced quilt or just a regular pieced quilt?

Unknown said...

I have a Question.... I am one of those that likes to have the full pattern and not do a week to week thing i love this quilt and my mothers birthday is about 3 weeks away and i would love to make this for her for her birthday is there a way to get the block patterns with out going threw the sew along.... please email me at thanks

Love this quilt along so thank you. I’m a huge Harry Potter fanatic.
So, I bought the bundle from fat quarter shop and and I was wondering which beige color did you use for the face Harry Potter?
There’s three in the bundle and I can’t tell from the pictures or I’m possibly being an over achiever and just want it to be perfect.

I am LOVING this sewalong (it's also the first one I've ever done). So for the epic back will it be Hogwarts Castle? Because I could get down with that! Or maybe The Hogwarts Express? A pixelated portrait of JK Rowling?

Hi Kelli - Love the HP patterns and just got the kit in the mail (while I have a large stash, I have no solids, so I ordered the kit). Is there any way you can reference the same color descriptions you gave for the moda bella solids (or the numbers of the colors) when you give colors in the patterns (for example, block one, you say to use 'lighter yellow'... there are three yellows in the kit: dark yellow, bright yellow and yellowish-white, no 'lighter yellow')... thanks for your time - Anne

Unknown said...

Hi Kelli,
Loving the pattern and have the bundle from Fat Quarter Shop. I think someone else may have commented on this -- would really appreciate if the weekly cutting instructions could list the FQS sku # or the Bella Solids color name. I went through your list and my bundle matching up fabrics to the list, but there is a little room for personal perception error (as I'm reminded when my mom called a clearly blue shade "grey"!). Thanks so much!!

Help please...I can't get block 9/Harry Potter's Wand to appear in printable form. I've had no problem with the other weeks. Thanks - Connie Jones

Yvonne said...

Enjoying the blocks. The link seems to be broke for the wand directions. Thank you

gpcrafty said...

Loving these blocks. There seems to be an issue with the April 27th (Dumbledore) link. Thank you

Unknown said...

So glad I'm not the only one who can't open the Dumbledore block. Look forward to these every Saturday so I was very disappointed..

Unknown said...

Am I missing the Quidditch cup directions. Can’t open it? Looking forward to getting these last four. Hagrid is being released on my birthday. Yeaaaa.

Unknown said...

I can't open Week 17 Quidditch Cup at all! Was there a problem posting it? Anyone else having this issue?

Kelli said...

Hi Ladies! I just got the Cup linked! It's been such a crazy week, (and it's happened in the past, also) that I forgot to link it over here. Sorry about that! But, if it happens again (hopefully not!), the posts are live each Saturday starting at 00:01 a.m. so if by chance it is not linked here, just hit the HOME tab at the top up there and it will take you to the main page where you can access the most recent post, as well as past posts by scrolling down. Thanks for your patience with this! :) I super appreciate it! xo

Unknown said...

What color thread should I use to quilt?

akbulbeck said...

Hi, I can't get into the Knight Bus. |Can I get some help? Thanks!

Kelli, any chance of getting the back layout soon. I have granddaughter with a late July birthday and would love to see the back layout in the next couple of weeks. Thanks!

Unknown said...

Any chance the format for the sorting hat and Dumblerdore blocks are available in a non PDF format?

Is there going to be a Luna lovegood and Malfoy block?

Margo said...

I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed putting the Harry Potter quilt together. Each and every block was so much fun. You are totally awesome in my books. Patterns are easily to follow and you even take the time to comment on the blocks posted in FB. I am now working on the Minecraft quilt!! Cannot wait to share it when it is done.

Pascaleion said...

Thank you so much for the sew along. Can't wait to see the extra blocks too.
