Project of Doom Week 10 Standard Book of spells, years 1 to 7. Traditionally, these books would all be with the same binding and with lettering and numbered. But I don’t have an embroidery machine and decided to rather make each book with its own colors, to make them more individual pretty. All the Harry Potter patterns can be found on the Fandom in Stitches website here. Here is my take on the block. The Standard Book of Spells is a collection of books written by Miranda Goshawk for a variety of subjects at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The series includes seven books,Read More →

And my house tie. “You might belong in Hufflepuff, Where they are just and loyal, Those patient Hufflepuffs are true, And unafraid ofRead More →

The first block is of the Deathly Hallows. “The Elder Wand,” he said, and he drew a straight vertical line on the parchment. “The Resurrection Stone,” he said, and he added a circle on top of the line. “The Cloak of Invisibility,” he finished, enclosing both line and circle in a triangle, to make the symbol that so intrigued Hermione. “Together,” he said, “the Deathly Hallows.“—Xenophilius Lovegood The second block is the Dark Mark and a potions bottle. “…You-Know-Who and his followers sent the DarkRead More →

Project of Doom week 1. This is the first of 30 weeks worth of blocks, based on all the Harry Potter movies and books. All the blocks are designed by Jennifer Ofenstein from Sewhooked and hosted by Fandom In Stitches. Block 1 is the crystal ball, Sybill Trelawney introduced all third year students to this device and its proper use in 1994. However, most students, Harry Potter and his friends in general, saw nothing more than the white blank swirl in it, and Ron joked about how that night would be very foggy. In their end of year exam, the third years had to lookRead More →

The Lirpa is a Vulcan Melee Weapon. The lirpa was a traditional Vulcan melee weapon, consisting of a metal staff with a fan-shaped blade on one end and a club on the other. The haft below the shaped blade had some Vulcan lettering on it. In 2154, the Vulcan commandos sent by the Vulcan High Command after Jonathan Archer and T’Pol wielded lirpas, since energy weapons were useless in Vulcan’s Forge. Archer disarmed one of them and was very familiar with the use of this weapon because of his mind meld with Syrran.  It was used by combatants in the kal-if-fee, the traditional mating challengeRead More →

The Romulan Phaser is one of many Romulan patterns that is being designed. The Romulan presence stand out most for me in the new timeline, when they came through the wormhole in their massive ship, which was an awesome sight. They did not have a major role, I think, in the old series. This phaser is the one that the Romulans used to shoot at Kirk, when he went to find Captain Pike on the Romulan ship. Please check back again for more Star Trek patterns, a whole queen sized bed quilt is planned. Plus extras so that everyone can pick their favorite blocks. TillRead More →

The Romulan Honor Blade is a stunning piece of weaponry and worthy of a place in any Star Trek Quilt. Honor, is something the Romulans valued the most. The Romulan Honor Blade (Romulan: dathe’anofv-sen) is a traditional weapon. Honor blades is passed down through Romulan families, and are ritually sharpened. I love the shape of this weapon, it just looks deadly and mean. The Romulans used these weapons to behead any opponents who stands in their way or betrays them. “Nero is a particularly troubled Romulan.“ – Spock, 2258 (Star Trek) LLAP Vanda Chittenden SaveRead More →
