Doctor.Who.Along Block 1

Welcome fellow Whovians!! Are you ready to get your Doctor on?  Soma and I are so excited to finally get this quilt-along underway.

Here we go ladies and gents it's time for Block 1.

Block 1 is the iconic Tardis.  Could it be anything else?


This block is all straight-line sewing and while it's not a beginner block, it only differs in that it has a few more pieces.  You do need some basic foundation piecing skills for this and all our blocks.  Instructions are included along with the pattern pieces.

You can download the pattern instructions here or through Craftsy.  Don't forget to add your finished block photo to the Flickr Doctor.Who.Along photo pool.  I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

Happy Sewing!  Geronimo!!!

Woo-hoo! My Kona solids came last week but unfortunately we're unexpectedly in mid loo-remodel so free time will need to be sneakily stolen!

Awesome! I'm so glad this is the first block - I'm being harassed about making a tardis-something at the moment!

I wish my piecing skills were better. I am following along but hope to improve my piecing skills before I attempt. Thank you for putting the patterns together

Can I tag along a bit late? It's all Jess's fault as a quilting friend of mine posted Jess's Tardis mug rug on her facebook page and of course I followed the links which led me here. Then....I made the mistake of sharing the fb post with adult DD, who shared it with adult DS who now won't be happy unless I make him a Dr Who quilt! I've never paper pieced before and I have yet to gather suitable fabrics as I don't have much in blues.
Cheers, Robyn
