AIR's Multifandom Quilt progress

I got a lot done this past month!  I'm hoping to get these put together before December, but we'll see.

AIR got her name (Artist in Residence) because she has always had a huge love for art.  The paint tubes came from a non-FiS freebie pattern over at Craftsy and they went together really easily.  The ravenclaw came from the 5"patterns in the HP extras section from the FiS page.  

This Malificent is an amazing pattern -- I made it during testing process and there were a few issues with getting it to line up.  It was appropriate for AIR since we call her Malificent as a play on her name as well as her love for the movie.  I've done the stitching here - I think one of the hardest parts of the pattern was getting skin tones that were different enough, without being too different.

Smaug.  He's not called the Terrible for nothing!  The original pattern does not have a book, so it took a little creative sketching on the pattern before assembling to get it in there.  This was my first attempt at adding something that wasn't original to the pattern, so it's a little wonky - but I'm happy with the overall effect.

Alice at the door is a TweLoQ pattern from FiS that I pattern tested.  This was a tough pattern to get lined up, but worth the time it took.  

I began doing some purposely fussycut spines in this quilt - how fun is that preggy woman!

The Sonic Screwdriver and wand in homage to her faves of Dr. Who and Harry - I did the screwdriver as is on the pattern for size, but changed the colors.  The glass they are sitting in wasn't exactly as I wanted, but worked.

Bebe's quilt progress

We're making headway!  I feel like all I do anymore is quilt!!  Here's more of the squares from her Christmas Multifandom
a part of the regular PoD, I actually made a mistake leaving the left side on the bottom of this feather, but I liked the distinction from other quills I've sewn, so I left it!

You can't see it but those snitch wings are metallic - I like the effect it has in person - and those book spines - THAT is so Bebe!!  I love the contrast of them stacked!

Olaf - oh, Olaf.  I wasn't sure if I'd still have sanity at the end of Olaf.  I had to reduce down the pattern 1/2 size to get him to fit (which makes him a total of 5 inches) and let's just say that those twigs are TINY!  Happy with the result tho.

The Championship Egg - I was really surprised at how quickly this pattern came together and while I wish I'd enlarged it now, it worked.  Pattern from the FiS HP extras.
