What is Quick Quotes Quilting!?

Well, if you're a Potter fan, you probably remember Rita Skeeter's handy dandy Quick Quotes Quill, which she used in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to write some very sketchy articles about Potter and the other Triwizard Champions!

Have no fear, Quick Quotes Quilting will not be used to conjure up any false Daily Prophet articles! I have been selected to present at LeakyCon2012, which if you are not familiar, is a Harry Potter conference based around the books! This year it's happening in Chicago, IL.

Anyways, Quick Quotes Quilting is a program in which Potter fans will be asked to come together to document their love for the series through quilting artwork. I will be assembling fabrics into a lovely Potter-inspired theme.

While I've already got the funds to get there and back, gathering the funds to get materials for my project has been more difficult than expected! That's why I need YOUR help to make this project successful. The money donated will cover the costs of all the fabric for the quilt, sewing supplies, needles, thread, materials for finishing touches, and the mountain of fabric markers which will probably get pretty pricey.

Muggle money translates quite easily into magical money, so please consider giving even just $5 to the project! There are tons of neat rewards I've tried to come up with for donating, so check those out on the right!

On behalf of all the magical folks at LeakyCon 2012 who will be a able to participate in this unique project documenting the amazing journey of the Harry Potter fandom, I say THANK YOU for your time and donations!
