THE Harry Potter Quilt Along page is under construction.
I have updated the size options.
Using the full size 20″ square blocks in this quilt setting,
the blocks are set with 1″ finished width sashing between the blocks and rows,
and with 1″ finished width borders, for the 85″ x 106″ size quilt.
HOWEVER, because you may wish to add wider side borders to increase the final width of the quilt to be suitable for a queen size bed, I adjusted the options to include 106″ x 106″ size option.
Print both of the PDF’s found below.

We are gonna be starting to test the #hpqal2019 blocks soon! This is our background fabric. De La Luna Clair Batty by @tulapink for @freespiritfabrics 🦇 Gotta admit I’m pretty excited!!! You can find all the fabric requirements on the Harry Potter quilt along page on my blog using the link in my profile ❤️ . . #sewfreshquilts #modernquilting #quiltalong #quiltalong2019 #harrypotterquilt #quilting #modernpatchwork #harrypotterfan #harrypotterfanart
Background Fabric? For the first 7 weeks you don’t even NEED to have your background fabric yet. There is no use of background fabric in the construction of the first 7 blocks. YES. That’s right. You don’t need to PANIC. And you are welcome!
Flesh tones? Why is everyone having so much trouble choosing fabric for faces? We are using KONA scraps left over from making from the Teenie Weenie Bikini quilt. Use any beige, tan, neutral you like. Prints would work too!
If the fabric requirements list a 1/4 yard…
Can it be a fat quarter? Can it be a long quarter? Yes. and yes.
Piecing Methods? This Harry Potter quilt along uses traditional piecing methods. NO PAPER PIECING. NO APPLIQUE.
