Hi Kris,

   I've been 'absent' since the new semester began but I've been reading the posts during breaks between classes.  I felt like I was in withdrawal and picked up my work on the WA Mini Star on Monday.  I'd like to join the Harry Potter project...and most likely can keep up with 2 blocks a month.  Thanks again to everyone posting---that keeps me connected and grounded. I'll try to be more response.   Namaste', Linda

Thanks Robin and Linda.

Robin, I think your DD will love it. I can't wait to see everyone's blocks. Of course the schedule will be a guideline. You can work on them at your own pace. 

Looking forward to your Mini Star Linda.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "pages" . Would you mind explaining to this newbee where you'll put the links next month when we start?

 

Am I correct in assuming that you are choosing which two blocks we do each month? And is there any way to save the harder blocks for towards the end so those that need it have a bit more experience by the time they hit them?

Vickie,

the links are in pages as Barbara said. When I open a thread for each block assignment I will include the link in the thread.

I will not be grouping blocks by difficulty.You can work on any block you want to and post when we get to it. I wouldn't want to have all the more challenging ones at the end. Once you have the concept of paper piecing down it shouldn't be too difficult to tackle any of them

Thanks. for the explanations ladies of the way the blocks will be posted.  I've been paper piecing for several years. I'm sure I can do any of the blocks; I was simply wondering if you had any plans for  posting in difficulty order. I just started teaching paper piecing and was wondering what your thoughts were on difficulty order.

Kris:

OK fellow paper piecers. Have you heard of the "Harry Potter Project of Doom"? This was a mystery BOW quilt from Jennifer Ofenstein of sewhooked. It is a paper piecing project that produces a very unique quilt. Harry Potter fans (I am one) should love it.

I downloaded it last year but never got around to making any of it. I was going through my patterns looking for something else when I stumbled upon it. I would like to attempt this as a group project. What say you?

Some of the patterns are challenging but I'm sure we can get through it. This should be fun. We can make it a 2 block per month project. You can omit any blocks you find too difficult but I think you will be remiss if you didn't try them all. I will post the link to the patterns in "pages" let me know what you think. We can get started next month if everyone is up for it.

Let me know.

Kris,

This  sounds awesome! My younger son loves Harry Potter and the quilt on the website looks great. I'm up for the challenge

Gini,

Printers "scale" or "fit to page" when you print  from the internet make sure you set the printer on "print 100%". The same thing happened to me when I made the Mariner's Compass. I hope it helps.
