Welcome to the fourth month of the Lego Harry Potter Quilt Along. I can’t believe that we are well over halfway through the quilt along already. I want to extend a special Thank You to everyone who made a donation to Maine Coon Adoptions to acquire the patterns from the previous months. I will match your donation, which will bring the total amount to over $400.- Thank you!!
For this month, I created two magical creatures –
Lockhart didn’t have much luck with these Cornish Pixies, but they are definitely a lot more cooperative as quilt blocks!!
I am super happy with this little Mandrake. You know he is screaming, but he would disagree. He is extremely engrossed in his singing.

Note – Both of these patterns use three shades of the same colour. I highly recommend writing the shades down on the pattern pieces before you cut them out and start sewing. It takes just a few extra minutes, but you will make a lot less fabric-related mistakes this way.
Reminder – Remember to download these patterns by Friday night. The download link will be removed permanently on Saturday morning (November 26th, 2016).
I draw these pictures freehand and then turn them into patterns, which is a lot of work. Please only use them for personal use and do not distribute or share them anywhere. For more information and for the pattern schedule, please read the introductory post. How to obtain the old patterns are also on the introductory post.
Sharing your work
If you are on Facebook, you can join the group Pictures With Paper Piecing and share your blocks there.
You can also share them on this Flickr group.
I decided not to pursue any outside sponsors for this event and fully sponsor it myself. As a thank you for reading my blog, I want to do a little celebratory giveaway for my readers only. If you are a subscriber, leave a comment here to be entered in the giveaway.
For additional chances, link up your finished blocks here. It doesn’t have to be a blog post. You can link up Flickr or Instragram photos too.
For each block entered, you will get two extra entries.
Link-ups will close on December 12th.
Next month is a break month, so there will be no patterns. I will have the next two patterns in the last week of January for you.
