For a while now, I've been wanting to put together a little crafty care package for the dear friend who introduced me to Doctor Who. Her favorite "character" is the TARDIS. I had the idea to piece together a TARDIS quilt, and this was the result:
In the space that usually says Police Box, I used fabric selvages. (My friend's name is Heather.)
I wasn't quite sure how I wanted to quilt it, but I took a cue from the background (crazily pieced Goodnight Monkey fabric) and did a bunch of stars in three different thread colors.
Here's a look at the stars from the back: (Plaid, since my friend also has a love for Scottish things. Like men in kilts.)
But wait, that's not all! I also made a little felt Adipose baby, complete with snaggletooth and all. "The fat just walks away!"
Actually, it flies away in a box to its destination. Along with another Tardishcloth (the third I've made, and btw I like it better in this Peaches & Creme yarn vs. the Sugar 'n Cream I used for the first two). Also included a couple buttons I found in an Etsy shop.
Hope she loves it!
