“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.
