Welcome to the Lego Harry Potter Quilt Along. Thank you for the wonderful comments and for the donations to my favourite charity. Today I get to share the final block of this quilt along with you, but before that I want to remind you to check back on the last Thursday of July. On that day, I will share the layout along with the extra blocks that are needed to put the quilt together.
So, without further ado, I present to you: A Dragon.
I specially made mine grey after the Gringott’s dragon, the tortured dragon who is later freed by Harry, Hermione and Ron. Freedom is something I value the most, and I think all creatures, big or small, ferocious or meek, should be able to live free without fear of captivity. The moment of the dragon’s breaking out of Gringott’s into open air always fills me with relief and utter happiness. So, I had to include the Gringott’s dragon in my quilt.
“She was helping the dragon enlarge the passageway, carving out the ceiling as it struggled upwards, towards the fresher air, away from the shrieking and clanking goblins.” — Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, by J.K. Rowling
Note – The dragon 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 (May 27th, 2017).
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.
Information on how to obtain the old patterns is also in the introductory post.
My blocks for this quilt –
Now I can’t wait to make my very own Patronus quilt with these blocks.
