Harry Potter Quilt Progress

Two posts in one day, I really am back. Also... I’ve got a massive to do list for the long weekend which I’m avoiding, so suddenly new blog posts seem very appealing. Anyone want to take two months worth of clothes to the dry cleaner for me? Anyone? No one? Sigh..
Anyway, I’m still working on my Harry Potter quilt... I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it once it’s finished (there are only so many quilts you can hang in our apartment before it starts to creep people out and worry your roommates) but in the meantime it’s a fun way to strengthen my embroidery skills.
It amazes me that the things I thought would be super difficult, like the Weasley’s car, turned out to be fairly simple, while the things I thought would be easy are barely recognizable. No one knows what Fudge’s lime green bowler hat is supposed to be, the most common guess is VW bug. I thought the color would tip everyone off but it just seems to confuse them. Along the same lines, my potion bottles all look like snowmen, no matter what color I outline them in. Oh well.

I’m posting some of my favorite photos below but there is so much going on it was impossible to capture everything. For a full gallery of photos please see my flickr link
