WIP: TARDIS

Finally I finished the Starry Night quilt top!!  It measures about 84" x 89"


So now I get to focus on the appliqued moon, mini-TARDIS and the "back"--which used to be the front until I went crazy complicated with the back. I bought this TARDIS cheater quilt from Spoonflower back in April, but it is no longer available (you can read more about it here).


I still really want to make the TARDIS panel it's own quilt, with lots of cool quilting...but I just can't bring myself to not put it on the back of the starry night quilt.  I think the quilting I have planned for the starry night side will still look really cool on the TARDIS side.  I should have the rest of the backing fabric by the end of the week and maybe get to baste over the weekend!  

I've also been slooowly working on a secret project, here's a hint:

Leftovers from my Lone Star quilt, taken apart, starched...ready to put back together.

  14. Eaack! I feel like the Tardis might get neglected on the back of your incredible Starry Night quilt.

  15. Wow! Amazing! This quilt is already amazing without the TARDIS. If you don't end up using the TARDIS on the back, it would make a very cool lap quilt.

    I plan on making a TARDIS quilt one day. I have ideas going around in my mind. What a great job you've done already.

  17. What a wonderful design and excellent piecing on both the Starry Night and the Tardis. Both worthy of being the front! Your secret project looks very colorful...will look forward to the reveal.
