Which Doctor?

Posted on | August 19, 2013 | 14 Comments

In amongst the busyness of having family here, I have completed one quilt. There was a deadline so I had to push  to make it but the last stitches went into the binding the night before it was due.  This one was another birthday gift for a Dr Who fan.



The Dr Who fabrics are all from Spoonflower.

The pattern I have used is Perfect Ten.

I had this one professionally quilted.

Perfect for a 50th birthday.

And the Dr Who 50th anniversary, too.

I kept one fabric aside for the borders. I think I like this one with the Police Boxes the best.

I then found a great circle fabric in the right colours to use as the backing.

Very pleased with the end result. I now get a break from birthday sewing for quite a while.

I have plenty of UFOs to return to now.

    Hello Karen,

    What a perfect quilt, just love that Dr Who fabric, I still remember Jon Pertwee being the Dr. Happy Birthday to the quilt owner.

    Happy days.

    OMG how cool is that! I’ve never seen Dr Who fabric before, my favourite is the Daleks. Now all I can hear in my mind is “I am a Dalek – Exterminate!”

    I LOVE this quilt! The colors and pattern ate beautiful. Amazed you got it done with all that is happening at your place.

  • Yay! It turned out magnificently! And it is always good to get a deadline met. I don’t know why, but I always seem to wait longer than I should then have to rush like crazy to finish.
