Harry Potter - A Bed Quilt

When our guild first started a "freebie" table as a way to repurpose fabric, patterns, magazines and supplies to other members, I picked up this Harry Potter panel from 2001.

I have a relative who LOVES Harry Potter and knew she would appreciate something made from it.  

Since this was for her full-sized bed it wasn't that difficult to figure out a layout.  It may be hard to tell from the picture but all the stars are wonky.  After I finished with the stars, the wonderful staff at my LQS (Pennington Quilt Works) helped pick out the fabric for the outer border.  Then a talented longarmer friend and fellow quilt member quilted it with a combination of stars, swirls and circles to give movement complimenting Harry's wave of the wand!

It looks great in her room guarded by Hedwig!
