First, let me preface this with saying the front is a cheater panel (which means the tardis and stars are printed on the fabric--I didn't piece those together) I bought from Spoonflower in April, and it is no longer available (update 11/15/14 it is available again at Spoonflower). Also, if you want to see the process posts, go here. Final size (after washing) is 39" x 67".
For quilting on the TARDIS I used Aurifil #2740--a beautiful royal blue. The black thread I used on the border and words is Superior So Fine #411. The white thread on the angels is a guttermann I had leftover from another project, and the yellow quilting in the light is Aurifil #1135. On the back I used Aurifil #2605 (medium grey). Thankfully I had very few tension issues, and fiddled with the tension every time I switched thread types on the top. I was VERY pleased that Aurifil in the bobbin played so nicely with the other threads!!
|I outlined (or inlined?) each letter. It was very tedious.|
Here are the Gallifreyan panels, I love the way they turned out after the water soluble stabilizer (Pellon 541) went away in the wash! My husband found some software online that lets you type in whatever you want and generates it in Gallifreyan! It was so helpful! Then I resized them, printed them, traced onto the stabilizer, pinned them on the quilt, quilted them, and trimmed off the excess. Gallifreyan is read starting at the bottom and then working counter-clockwise.

|I LOVE the way the quilting in the border crinkled up after a good wash.|
And here's the back:
The backing fabric is leftovers from the Starry Night quilt back.
|Kinda glad the scary angel is hidden in the globe fabric, haha.|
|The binding is Kona Charcoal, and my tags are from TagsToGo on Etsy.|
So glad to have this quilt finished, I spent two weeks just on quilting it!
