Description

I'm in an art quilt group which is affiliated with the guild I belong to, Tablerock Quilt Guild.  We were working on a project and it started with the direction, put a shed on a small background.  I decided this was the perfect opportunity to do a Doctor Who quilt which I had been contemplating.  So I got some interesting dark blue fabric and stenciled this interesting time piece stencil on the background with shiva paint sticks.  I then found some blue fabric for the TARDIS.  My drawing skills are limited to stick people so I struggled drawing the TARDIS but with some ingenuity and transparencies I got a passable "shed".  Then I went to the computer to print out two color pictures of my favorite Doctor Who and his companions.  I appliqued them on and tried a little thread painting on Rose's hair but I wasn't thrilled with that effect so I didn't continue it on the others.  Then I quilted the cogs that were part of the stencils and with some straight stitches and a special cog like stitch.  That is the 10th stitch I've used of the 240 decorative stitches on my Janome.  Then I added a couple of crystals to sparkle it up a bit.  It was a fun project.

Ah...you've got our favorite Doctor on there, and Rose is my daughter's favorite companion although I'm undecided about that one....love Donna and Amy too...this is so clever! I'd promise my daughter a Doctor Who quilt but my UFO pile is climbing ever higher...arghh!...someday!

Maura Mymble Nexxus831 HawkFan thanks for the feedback. There are a couple of things I would have done differently but for the most part it turned out as I had imagined.
