i printed all the harry potter blocks but one, because i didn't like one of the blocks and i thought when i was ready i would figure out which block i wanted to adapt. bad move.
the link is broken to the patterns and i can't download anything. i tried their search and got nothing. is there something i am not doing right or are the patterns gone.
the patterns i wanted to look at were: scabbers, griffendor crest, fawkes and the hungarian horntail. if any of you have one or any number of these, could i have copies?

Here's the web page. http://www.fandominstitches.com/2011/05/harry-potter.html
They seem to be working for me.
the files to the patterns won't open for me. the get on a closed loop that keeps flashing back to the open file link.
it might be my computer, i'll check on the one at home.
I couldn't figure out how to attach them to a PM so I sent you an email with the 4 patterns.
thanks jacy. i just made it home and was going to try my computer here.
i can get them here at home. something must be up with the office computer, again.
Could be a higher level of security or firewall, I can't get some sites from work for that reason
Groan....I've been playing with the paper piecing patterns in Seascapes. I love these patterns but I've having a horrible time with them. I've done three so far. Each one has it's issues, even what I thought would be an easy one, the whale tail. Here they are,in order. I did the whale tail first,(I think I already posted this one) then the lighthouse (it came out WONKY!!!) and finally the lobster. There's what I think is an error in the lobster pattern but I can't do anything about that now. I tried to make the water going in the same direction but gave up on that really quickly. I had intended to make all the blocks in the book. That is no longer my intention. Maybe a couple more and I'll just make a wall hanging (or cat bed depending on how it turns out). Maybe I'll feel differently after putting this project aside for a few weeks. It took me about 7 hours, over a period of three weeks, to do JUST the lobster. That includes copying the pattern pieces, using colored pencils to figure out what coloring goes where before I even put needle to fabric. I'm done whining now.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
Judy ,I love them . you know what your issues are but as of now I don't see them. Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
Judy está muy lindos, es bueno tener retos, el uso del cerebro nos aleja del alzheimer, y el vencerlos nos llena el ego. Adelante! estan muy lindos. Ninette
Thanks Ninette. That's funny and if true this project will definitely keep me from developing Alzheimers!
I really like the lobster! He looks like he's fighting mad and thrashing around in the water. Only way to change him would be to use a water pattern what isn't so directional. You've done a wonderful piecing job, and your colors are great!
Sorry....I can't see any wonky-ness in the lighthouse. Your piecing looks spot on! Seams match, lines are straight. I wonder if you used a darker color for the lighthouse if that would let it show up against the sky? The white of the lighthouse seems to blend into the sky and it's hard for my old eyes to easily see it's shape. I tend to see one of those old playtex baby bottles rather than a lighthouse....but that would be a design flaw or my strange imagination...not your piecing. That sky fabric is so grand!
Maybe you'd like working with this series of patterns, and the resulting blocks, if you weren't having to struggle so with the patterns not being clearly labeled for what colors go where. That's a shame that they aren't more user friendly, especially at the price of the book. Maybe you've just been too close to them for too long. You need to lay the aside for a few days, work on something else and relax, then look at them again. They really are well done! I'd be tickled pink if they were my blocks!
Hello Judy! I agree with MaxNTopeka, your blocks look great. The lighthouse does look like the ones I seen, as well as the lobster. I love the way you did the sky too. I have the same book but haven't had a chance to work on any of the patterns yet. We are always to critical of our own work!
Have a great week & Happy Thanksgiving to all.
