Redundant Doctors for the Win!

IMG_9408

Are you tired of hearing about the Doctor Who quilt?

This is it, I promise, the LAST post about it!

Despite talking about it in countless TTMT videos, I just had to share one more post in photos. There’s just something about a good picture, don’t you think?

Doctor Who Quilt 2013

Here she is, the finished quilt with all 11 Doctors plus the TARDIS.

I know, I know, even I’m blown away by this quilt!

Doctor Who Stitch Along Quilt

How about a close up of the quilting? I free motion quilted it on my Baby Lock Quest Plus. The whole thing. On a home sewing machine. Yes, I did!

Doctor Who Stitch Along Quilt

My quilting isn’t perfect, but it makes my daughter happy, and since this is her quilt, I’m happy, too!

I just LOVE the geometry. LOVE IT>

Doctor Who Quilt - Label

The lovely label made using¬†Jessica Blacknall’s “50 Years” pattern with the names of the Doctor Who Stitch Along Designers added in the space.

TARDIS pattern by me, available on Fandom In Stitches.

My daughter leaves for college on Saturday. These are hers. ūüôā

Want to hear more about all this stuff? Watch my last TTMT video!

Because I love this quilt layout SO very much and because you asked, I thought it unfair to not share it with the world!

Here it is, dubbed Faux Mitered Marvel, a full-color six page pattern complete with fabric chart and instructions, just $8 on Craftsy. The best part is you could feature ANYTHING in the 8″ and 5″ squares.

I can’t wait to see what your wonderful creativity does to this surprisingly simple pattern!

Love Potion Number Nine

The Ninth Doctor

The Ninth Doctor, designed by Aalia Zaman, stitched by me!

As the saying goes, you never forget your first doctor.

The Ninth Doctor was my first Doctor. I knew nothing, absolutely NOTHING about Doctor Who. My hubby has been a fan since he was a kid. He remembers back many, many Doctors. I was a newbie. And then came Nine. I’ve been hooked ever since!

The Ninth Doctor was designed for the Doctor Who Stitch Along over on Fandom In Stitches by the very talented stitching guru, Aalia Zaman. I love how she captures his personality with just a few stitches. Truly fantastic!

My Doctors so far. Designers are noted below.

Doctor Tease

Last Stitch teaser!

These are my last few stitches in the Doctor Who Stitch Along. One of the best parts of being a designer on a project like this is getting to see all the wonderful designs before the Stitch Along ever started.

Oh my goodness, I can’t wait to show you all my blocks when the designs have all been revealed! Just four more weeks…

Aalia's Hufflepuff Themed Block

As a random aside, I HAVE to share this gorgeous quilt block made by Kristel incorporating my Fleur-de-li¬†pattern. It’s Hufflepuff themed…and brilliant! The very lucky Aalia was the recipient of this gorgeous block.

Have you made projects from my designs? I’d love to see them in the Sewhooked Flickr group!

Stitching, Stitching, Stitching

Now that we’re officially underway with the Fandom In Stitches Doctor Who Stitch Along, I can talk a little bit about it!

DW-SAL-Badge

Want to join in? Just click the banner! It’s completely free, and most certainly fun!

The idea for the Stitch Along came to me in the fall of 2012 during a conversation about the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who.

Woah…definitely something to celebrate! I was working full time and didn’t have two minutes to rub together, but still the idea percolated. It niggled and irritated and then eventually…I was not working full time anymore! I threw some confetti and then invited some of the most talented hand embroiders I know to help design a 12 block quilt. I told them my idea and we immediately got to work.

The idea, from concept to today, has been about a 7  month process. Before I ever approach anyone to work on a project like this, I do my utmost to think it through. Will it work? Is it a good idea? Who will want to make it? Which blog should it be featured on (I run both Sewhooked and Fandom In Stitches)? What designers (or in many cases, potential designers) should I approach?

And of course, most of all, bigger than anything else…will it be fun?

The answer to the last question should always, ALWAYS be yes!

My version of our Doctor Who quilt is going to be a gift for my daughter. She graduates at the end of May and will be going off to university in the fall. She is by far the most serious Whovian in our house and is super excited at the idea of having a Who-themed quilt!

The First Doctor block completeHello there, Doctor!

This is the very first incarnation of The Doctor, looking very proper. My version is worked entirely in backstitch.

Embroidery pattern designed by Aalia from Joy of Stitches. If you haven’t seen Aalia’s stitching, you have got to visit her blog. Her work is absolutely stunning!

The quilt for my daughter will be made all out of blues with scrappy fabrics. Something like this…

scrappy version (dark outer border)I love how the different blues create a pinwheel effect. Lovely!

Quilt layout designed by me in EQ7 and available on Fandom In Stitches.

fabric for the Doctor Who Stitch Along

These are our fabrics, all pulled from my stash. It seems I have a thing for stars and swirls…in case anyone was unsure about that!

Love Doctor Who? These are my other Who-Themed patterns…all paper pieced and available on for free on the Doctor Who page over on FiS. ¬†If you love DW, be sure to check the Doctor Who page for other fun patterns by some of Fandom In Stitches‘ talented designers!
