I made it as a Christmas present for Kim (The brains behind Crafternoon Delight) and I finally finished it and gift it yesterday. Way back in May I stumbled upon the Sewhooked project of doom Harry Potter paper piecing library. And I said, self, this is the PERFECT thing for Kim. We all love HP but she really loves HP.
I chose to make a few paper pieced bookshelves into a wall hanging that she can put above her real bookshelf in her craft room. There are so many great patterns to choose from. I picked ones that had lots of books and other interesting items. One day maybe I will make the full quilted bookcase for my future craft room.
Block #1 - has some Felix Felicis (aka liquid luck). Hogwarts: A History, Quidditch throughout the Ages, and Magical Me by Gilderoy Lockhart. I imagine that it is signed on the inside flap by Mr. Lockhart himself. I machined embroidered Felix Felicis on the potion and hand embroidered the rest.
Block #2 - The Half-blood prince's copy of Advanced Potion-Making (2nd Edition) and Dumbledore's copy of The Tale of Beedle the Bard. Sorry you can't see the embroidery too well on that book. It wasn't the best choice of fabric. Harry left his glasses on this shelf (probably a spare pair). A little spider made his home in the corner. I think he is Aragog's great-great-great-great-great-great grandson. I machine quilted the spider and the web. Hand stitched the book titles.
Here is a close up of Aragog Jr.
Block #3 - This block has the first snitch Harry caught sitting on top of more books. You can't see which books these are but the bottom one is clearly The Monster Book of Monsters from the Care of Magical Creatures class. Above that is the standard book of spells 3 and Ancient Runes. I machine quilted the pages.
Here is the back. I used some HPesque fabrics. I also added different types of tabs to hang the quilt. The binding is colored for each of the houses at Hogwarts.
Linking up with Fabric Tuesdays!
