It essentially uses the same pattern I've been using for my Harry Potter quilts (Gryffindor Quilt here, Hufflepuff Quilt here, and all four Hogwarts Houses here), but with three colors to work with instead of just two house colors. With these quilts, I try to work in different visual textures, so if you look closely, there's some homespun plaid, tone-on-tone houndstooth, polka dots, swirls, stripes, and even some metallic gold.
It's a really fast pattern to sew up, and I love the results, so I'll be getting the pattern written up soon.
As with most of my recent quilts, this one is an oversize throw, so it was too big for one width of fabric on the back. My favorite backing material is Kona Cotton because it's thick, durable, and less expensive than designer prints. Plus there are so many colors to choose from, I can just about always get the color I need. (No, this isn't an ad...I just love the stuff.) The light green on the back is Kona Green Tea.
This quilt is available to purchase from Pieces by Polly Quilts here.
What about you? Have you started any Christmas projects yet? Now I've got a Halloween Quilt I need to get started on.
