So, when the small person and I brought our fabric up to the cutting station at JoAnn's, the woman working there looked at our colors and asked "Is this something for Harry Potter, or Gryffindor or something?"
The darker red is the front and back, 108" and the brighter red and gold will be for the shield and some simplified decoration. The brighter gold is for the lion and the pearl cotton is to work in some finer designs.
Right now, the fabric is waiting for the dryer, then the iron. I'm planning to work the shield and all that design and then apply it to the large ground of the front. Not sure about quilting versus tying, maybe I'll quilt the snitch into it.
