Harry Potter, A Love Story

The Project of Doom

Once upon the time, there was a girl that loved Harry Potter.

I don’t mean that she loved The Boy Who Lived. She did, of course, but most of all, she loved his story.

His story captured the world. It gave grown men and women the urge to jump on broomsticks and wear robes. It turned children that did not care for books into avid readers. His story told us that there is a place for everyone and that the brave of heart can also be clever and loyal, and that good will, in the end, conquer evil.

Now, back to the girl.

To show her love for Harry, the girl designed and shared hundreds of quilt patterns about Harry’s adventures. Eventually, others that loved Harry wanted to do the same, and a community grew up around their mutual love of The Boy Who Lived.

After many, many years of waiting with bated breath and following every word of his story, Harry did, finally, conquer Voldemort and the story came to an end.

The girl continued to quilt and to share, but in the back of her mind, there was an idea. A wonderful, scary, huge idea.

It sat and percolated for almost eight years.

Then, one day, she started drawing. Pattern after pattern emerged, and she realized that the joy of this project must be shared with others like her. Somewhere during the creative process, this same girl realized that this project, this quilt, would be the last big Harry Potter project she would take on. This made her both happy and sad, so she gave this very happy project an ominous name.

The Project of Doom.

Imagine the girl’s surprise and joy when she realized that others really did want to share in the adventure of this, her last big Harry Potter project!

It would be months of choosing just the right fabrics, sharing ideas, and making new friends.

Months of stitching, and waiting, and anticipation.

She had no idea, at the beginning how big or how wonderful it all would be or how many talented, wonderful new people she would meet as a result.

And now, for those that started the journey together in January, this adventure has ended. For others, it is only beginning.

For the girl? She will be forever grateful to those that joined her in the journey, but most especially to Harry, his friends, and the adventures he shared with us.

The Project of Doom – End of Days Challenge

Photobucket

Fandom In Stitches is the child of Harry Potter Paper Piecing and Sewhooked. Without the fabulous quilters and designers that came together through HP Paper Piecing, FiS would just not have been possible.
The last big project I hosted on Harry Potter Paper Piecing was The Project of Doom. I did not name it that because it was even remotely scary, but because it was my Last Big Potter Project. The End of Days? The last challenge presented to the group, and a chance to win free quilting from official quilter of both Harry Potter Paper Piecing and Fandom In Stitches, Rock Creek Quilts.
The following 11 quilts were finished in time for the End of Days Challenge, and there are many more in progress!
