Doctor? Doctor Who?

Doctor Who Paper Piecing Quilt Along

As we are rolling into the last days of the Spring Fling Blog Hop, I bring you tidings of a new event here at Whims And Fancies.

My partner in crime, Caroline Press from Trillium Design was on her way to make a Doctor Who quilt. Well, so was I. You know the age-old saying – two brains are better than one. We put our brains together and have been planning this event for months. Both of us are very excited to now present to you:

Doctor.Who.Along – A Whovian-Inspired Quilt-Along

We will be posting one 12″ Doctor Who quilt pattern every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month alternating between our blogs. At the end you will have 20 blocks to finish a fantastic Doctor Who quilt for yourself or a Doctor Who fanatic in your life!

The very first pattern for this Doctor Who quilt along will be revealed on May 7th by Caroline, followed by me on May 21st. I hope you will join us on this fun adventure at the Flickr Group. You can check our full schedule there for this event. We will update the schedule as we post new patterns.

    I got waylaid and haven’t made the quilt yet. I have saved all the patterns, and now is a good time to start, right?

    My daughter and her family love Dr. Who so I think this going to be my next project.

    I’m trying foundation piecing for the first time…so hopefully this works out. lol It’s a shame that all the pieces won’t be revealed before Christmas though…because that leaves me with having to try and make my own to finish it on time…lol

    • Soma Acharya says:

      Welcome to foundation piecing. Take your time while making the blocks and you will be fine. I know, I will have to wait to finish my quilt after the holidays as well, but this way we don’t have to rush :)

      Have a wonderful weekend,
      Soma

    I love this! I was looking for some Doctor Who quilt blocks to make a grad present for my daughter and this will be perfect! I can’t thank you enough as my talents do not lean towards designing. I can’t wait to see the rest of the blocks.

    • Soma Acharya says:

      What a wonderful idea for a grad present! I am always too happy to share Doctor Who patterns with a fellow Whovian.

    Hello, I just found this site and this project. I know I am late to the party, but I am so excited about doing this. I am a big DW fan. I am not new to sewing or quilting, but am new to foundation piecing, so hopefully am not over my head. Just one seam at a time, right???

    • Soma Acharya says:

      How exciting! I am so glad to have you here. You are in good company. There are many who are new to foundation piecing participating in this QAL. As you said, take it slow, one seam at a time :)

      Have fun,
      Soma

    I just finished my Dr. Who Tardis. I want to put a quilt label on the back. How would I give credit to you and Whims and Fancies? What should the quilt label say?

  8. Kay says:

    Thank you. Have been wanting to make a quilt for my husband. Now I have it! We all love the Doctor!!!

    That’s *fantastic*! (parsed in the Ninth Doctor’s voice)

    Is this a Tenth-specific, or DW-generally QAL? Either way, I’m in!

      Yay! So glad to have you join us!!

      Without giving away too much so it won’t spoil the fun – it will be a DW QAL with a nice doze of the Tenth! I LOVE 9th’s Fantastic! He is my husband’s doctor :)
