I’m a huge Doctor Who fan. I’ve been watching it since I was a little girl and it aired on PBS. I don’t remember much of the original Doctor Who, but i’ve watched all of the newer ones since they began airing. I’m actually a season behind right now. I hate to watch knowing it will end. I also have a hard time watching, knowing that I will need to do nothing but watch. There is no working on other stuff while I watch that show. It just sucks me in!
Needless to say, I was thrilled when Caroline emailed me to see if I would be interested in quilting her Doctor Who quilt from the quilt-along she was co-hosting. She asked if I would be able to quilt it to look like Gallifreyan script (the writing of the Gallifreyan’s – i.e. Doctor Who’s people), or something similar. Of course, there was nothing out there like it, so I had to go ahead and create it for the Statler. I had a lot of fun designing and setting it up and it was great to see it quilted on the quilt. I am quite please with how it turned out. Caroline did a beautiful job on the quilt top and I think her idea for the quilting was brilliant and i’m so glad I could bring it to life.
You can see more photos of the completed quilt top on Caroline’s blog.
