I thought I'd take this opportunity to share the HP quilt that I made Hanna a few years ago. It was not easy to find HP fabric at the time, but between ebay and a few friends, I managed to get enough for a quilt and two pillow cases. It was a real trick of magic to keep this a secret for her Birthday.
I pieced it together out of many of the HP fabrics, and used the lightening streak (Harry's scar) as borders.
There is a panel on the front and back, thanks to ebay.
The pillow cases have only a little official HP fabric on the side, but the batik stars worked well here, I think.
Here are a few photos from our wonderful trip. Does this young lady look happy and excited, or what?
The architecture of the buildings and castle and plantings were really well done!
I even managed to find sewing in the wizarding world at the robe shop. The tape measure moved up and down at different lengths by magic*
Hagrids hut, very cool.
The buildings of Hogsmeade were snow topped, just as in the movie.
Everything we had heard about the Butter Beer was true; it was delicious! I sampled the special Hog Heads Beer, which is only available here in Hogsmeade, it was quite satisfying with my shepherds pie.
And now back to the Muggle world. I sure wish I could wave a wand and finish all my housework so I can back to quilting!
