Who is Badwolf?

Ah yes the endless Badwolf references. We spent a whole season (or more) wondering who Badwolf was? Remember those? Pretty iconic Doctor Who I think.  That's this weeks theme for Block 5 of the Doctor.Who.Along.

Badwolf Doctor.Who.Along Block 5
Yes I know it looks complicated and to be honest, it is one of the toughest blocks in the QAL but if you go slow and do small sections at a time, I know you will get there! This block took me approximately 2 evenings to piece - that's about 6 hours.  So keep that in mind. Take your time and roll with it!

The pattern can be found here and on Craftsy.

I chose a brick print background for my block but since it's directional, it adds another layer of complexity to the piecing, if you are a beginner, stick with a non-directional or even a solid print for your background. Follow my piecing guidelines here for those tricky diagonal seams and all will be well.  A glass of wine might help also :)  After all, it's supposed to be fun, right?!

Don't forget to add your finished block photo to the Flickr Doctor.Who.Along photo pool.

Happy Sewing!  Geronimo!!!

Your "Bad Wolf" is so cool! I really like the effect that the brick fabric gives. Thank you for this piece of the puzzle ;D

How on earth could I have missed this? I've loved Doctor Who since I was a kid. I've never paper pieced in my life, but if there has to be a first time, this makes it definitely worth trying.

Great design! Now as to the background....bricks, woodwork, striped fabric to simulate a garage door...decisions decisions :).

Like the background. Want to use wood for one, but can not find something I like for my 2nd. May take Soma's idea of the pavement.
