Harry Potter Catching the Snitch
Jennifer Ofenstein's Fandom in Stitches website is an excellent resource for Harry Potter quilt patterns. The patterns are all free -- Jennifer discourages selling patterns, quilts, and other items inspired by trademarked or copyrighted works such as J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter book series.
About the Harry Potter Quilt Patterns
- Patterns by Jennifer and others are easy to download as PDF files.
- Most are paper pieced patterns and some may require you to add a few details to enhance the... finished quilt blocks.
- Patterns are rated to give you an idea of their difficulty.
- Pattern sizes vary but can be reduced or enlarged. Use sashing strips to frame small quilt blocks that you'd like to sew next to larger blocks.
This slideshow offers a peek at 11 quilt and quilt block patterns that range in difficulty from easy to a bit more advanced. Start paper piecing with a few easy patterns if it's new to you and move on to more difficult projects when you're comfortable with the technique. Once you've sewn a paper pieced quilt, you'll understand how to sew any paper pieced project.
