This is my entry in the Home Machine Quilted category for the Blogger's Quilt Festival!
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 early 2013. It is no longer available, and I have since designed and pieced my own TARDIS, which you can see here.
I quilted it ornately, and added a lot of special Dr. Who details to the windows and door panels:
|A weeping angel--white on white to imply a reflection, rather than it being inside looking out.|
|A scary weeping angel, words in the top corners say "Don't blink"|
I used some software online to create the following words in Gallifreyan, printed them out, traced them onto water soluble stabilizer and then quilted it with my FMQ foot:
|"Bigger on the inside"|
If you want to see the process posts for all of the quilting, you can browse them here.
|"Wibbly wobbly timey wimey"|
|"Are you my mummy?"|
|"Renee Hoffman twenty thirteen"|
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).
Size 39" x 67"
Quilted by me, Renee Hoffman on my Janome 6300.
