Doctor Who QAL – Weeping Angel

Weeping Angel Doctor Who Quilt Pattern

“Don’t blink. Don’t even blink. Blink and you’re dead. They are fast. Faster than you can believe.”

The Weeping Angel is back as the next Doctor Who quilt pattern.  I love statues of stone angels, so this was an easy choice for me as the first Doctor Who quilt block I ever made.   I made this pattern last year, shortly after I started sewing and drawing paper piecing patterns.  I wanted to mention that because even though it is an advanced piece,  I think it is very much doable if you take your time and work on it slowly.  That’s how I did it, despite my limited sewing skills at the time.

I also made a more simplified version of the block.  The wing is missing the veins in this version.  If you wish, you can embroider them on afterwards.  The hair is also missing some details, so that reduces a few sections from the pattern as well.

I retired the original 10″ pattern and replaced it with a 12″ pattern.  That will make the small pieces in both patterns a little easier to sew.  I also combined both patterns into one file.  That way you can print only the pages of the pattern you choose to make.

For the Doctor Who – Weeping Angel Quilt Block you will need –

1 fat quarter for the background

1 light shade of grey

1 dark shade of grey

    Oooo I just found you and I am so so excited! I do quite a bit of paper piecing, so this is right up my alley. I went to Craftsy and downloaded lots of the patterns. I was just wondering how many blocks in total there were and if anyone has a completed quilt yet? Thanks so so much! (I found 20 blocks on Craftsy).

    I just finished my block, and this pattern was amazing! It was such an exercise in trust though. At first you really can’t see the results and it looks like a hot mess. Thanks for the pattern.

    • Soma Acharya says:

      Thank you so much! I am really glad to hear that you were able to sew this one without any problem. It’s possibly the hardest block in the Doctor Who pattern set.


  3. Kassaundra says:

    Did the background fabric take the entire fat quarter? I have a piece of fabric I would like to use as the background and am trying to figure out if I have enough. And your patterns are amazing! Thank you for sharing them.

    • Soma Acharya says:

      Thank you so much! I don’t exactly remember if I used a full fat quarter, but I would recommend having a complete or as close as you can get to a fat quarter for this one.

    is the pattern I downloaded exact size except for adding1/4 in. seam thank you

    • Soma Acharya says:

      Yes, you will, as you already noted, need to add 1/4″ seam allowance to each section. Hope this helps.

    This is a stunner! I’m amazed you pieced the veins in the wings. Your paper piecing has incredible detail :)

    • Soma Acharya says:

      Thank you, Janine! This one is possibly the hardest and most intricate paper piecing block I made until today :)


  6. Amanda says:

    Some day I’m going to make this block… it’s just so beautiful!

  10. I really love the angel she looks challenging. thank you so much for sharing your talent. As soon as I complete something I will share back. My sewing has been set aside to take care of a 2 & 3 yr old that need all my love and attention.

    • Soma Acharya says:

      Thank you, Shirley! This one is challenging. I had to work on it very very slowly. You have the most important and fun job in the world, enjoy :)

    I love the angel. My sister & I have collected angels since childhood and this would make a great surprise for her.

  12. DebV says:

    Thank you! I was hoping the weeping angels would show up. I have loved this ever since I saw it on Fandom in Stiches as Don’t Blink – even before I knew what a weeping angel was. Now that I know what they are I like the creepy things even more!

    Wanted to let you know, we have been touring colleges and while on Yale’s campus we found Bad Wolf written on one of the buildings. My daughter even took a picture of it. So, I am going try to commemorate that look for the block that I still need to do for her quilt.

    • Soma Acharya says:

      Thank you so much!! We couldn’t possibly leave the weeping angel out of this quilt along.

      Isn’t that fun to spot Bad Wolf at Yale campus, that may have tipped the scale for me toward going to Yale :)


  13. Janeen says:

      Thank you so much, Carin! Wishing you a speedy house renovation so you can get back to quilting again :)

    I am a big fan of your work. This piece is amazing!

  17. LeahO says:

    Thank you Soma. It’s beautiful. Adding the details with embroidery is a great idea. I have some silver metallic thread that would work wonderfully I think. I can’t wait to get started on this quilt. As soon as I finish the baby quilt I am working on, this quilt is the next on my agenda.

    • Soma Acharya says:

      Thank you!! Silver metallic thread on the angle sounds like a great idea. Have fun making the baby quilt!
