PoD Week 21 & 22

This week brings us the only post of this entire project where I will present you with not one, but two blocks! The reason for this, as I mentioned in yesterday's post, is that I will be having some super-special visitors over the next week and am taking Wednesday off in order to enjoy their presence.

Reminder: If you DO NOT want to see the block before you make the pattern in order to keep it a mystery, please do not click on the cut! If you leave a comment, you will be taken behind the cut and will see the block...just FYI!

I suppose it's rather obvious just now why I thought these blocks would be the perfect two to share? I can only imagine the comments and questions if I'd posted 21 alone, with just that tiny bit of brim sticking out! Originally, I tried to make the Sorting Hat work in one block, but it just did not do the old hat justice. So, I am happy to share with you the only two blocks in the PoD that absolutely, positively must be placed side-by-side in your finished quilt. Do I have a master plan? Of course I do...but we'll get there, we'll get there! In 9 weeks or so...

Oh, I LOVE these! My computer is no longer communicating with my machine, so I can't machine embroider until that's fixed. Hmmmm.....just when I finally find a little time to quilt. I guess I could make Block 22 (and the Monster Book) while I work on it.
Thanks so much!
Enjoy those visitors....can't wait to hear how great it goes.

Yay! I'm glad you love them! So sorry to hear about your machine...silly thing needs to cooperate with you, but I do understand technology communication issues. I've been having some of my own lately...

Can't wait for my visitors!

Well, my computer was suddenly unable to find its hard drive. So I took it to the hospital. It was a virus. They cleaned up everything, and when I plugged the reader/writer in, it doesn't recognize it. Keeps saying it's not connected. I haven't had the time and patience to make that frustrating call to Husqvarna Viking yet. Soon, though. I am going to try to meet one of our regulars in a few weeks, I just have to make that frustrating call to finalize our plans before I ask her! So exciting!

Ack, technology! It can be so freaking frustrating some times...

Meeting a regular? Oh, I am intrigued!
Jun. 8th, 2011 12:42 pm (UTC)
Yay! Gonna go work on it right now. No! You must get ready for work! But... must... piece... blocks. Darn. Dryer just buzzed. Guess I'll be emptying that first.
Jun. 8th, 2011 12:43 pm (UTC)
Almost forgot to ask... is it safe to join them together after we piece them?
Jun. 8th, 2011 12:48 pm (UTC)
For these two blocks, YES, absolutely okay to piece them together. I'd wait on the rest until the end. :)
Jun. 8th, 2011 12:49 pm (UTC)
And double yay! I thought these would be super fun to share!

21 is done and posted onto hppaperpiecing on flickr, 22 will have to wait until I'm back home I guess. but since you're posting not next week, at least I won't get behind!
Jun. 9th, 2011 10:14 am (UTC)
ok you can tell it's 4:13 am and I barely started drinking my coffee. since you're NOT posting next I won't get behind... *sips coffee* *brain slightly de-fogging"

Oh, wow! How perfect to have these two at once. It totally would have driven me mad to try to figure out what that bit of hat sticking out would have been!

Enjoy your time together! :)
Jun. 8th, 2011 12:59 pm (UTC)
I know! It was just kismet that these two happened to fall during the week I needed to take a break. :)

Re: what fun
Thanks :)
Jun. 8th, 2011 01:12 pm (UTC)
Fabulous blocks!!! I too would have been going crazy trying to figure it out. Can't wait to get to work on them.
Jun. 8th, 2011 01:32 pm (UTC)
They're fairly easy, too...big pieces!
Jun. 8th, 2011 02:05 pm (UTC)
There just had to be the sorting hat. Thanks, I have been looking forward to doing this one for a long time. I have been able to keep up; so in my spare time I have been making the 5" squares. I purchased your film strip; so these squares are being made up for two young HP fans. They just happen to be going to Universal Studio, in Florida, this fall. The best part is that I am going with them.

The PoD would not be the same without it, you're right!

How wonderful that you're getting to go to Universal! I would love to go someday. :)

Can't wait to see what you do with Classic Film. I've seen so many great variations, it's amazing to see all the different takes everyone has!
Jun. 8th, 2011 02:55 pm (UTC)
love the sorting hat :)
and like the others say I would have been going crazy trying to find out what it was :P (and perhaps would have made it purple or something)
Jun. 8th, 2011 03:48 pm (UTC)
Purple...exactly! Before I decided to post them both this week, I was planning to leave lots of hints including the word "sort." Sort of easy, sort of fun, sort of important... ;)
Jun. 8th, 2011 09:03 pm (UTC)
Thanks Jennifer. Have a nice time next week.
It's good you've posted them together. Maybe I would have missed those hints.
Jun. 8th, 2011 09:49 pm (UTC)
My pleasure! Happy stitching. :)

OMG I am so glad I found your site. I need to make my son a quilt for college and he is all about Harry Potter.. we have not gone a day without hearing something about since he could read the book on his own. That was in 3rd grade and he is now a senior in H.S. Now I need to work fast to get this quilt going. Ahhh...
Jul. 11th, 2011 01:20 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you found us, too! My kids have grown up with Harry Potter, too (my daughter is about to be a junior), so I totally get it! :)

Question - how much yardage did you use for the background fabric? I am trying to be consistant and want to make sure I have enough.
Jul. 11th, 2011 05:38 pm (UTC)
3 yards :)
