Sometimes blog hop suggestions and internet tidbits run into each other with perfect timing. Joan's idea for this hop about Fairy Tales and an article about an audio book series crossed my path in the same week.
To be honest when I signed up I had no idea whatsoever what I would do for this hop and I was pretty much going to do something regarding a traditional fairy tale with a Disney spin. But then an article regarding Doctor Who audio books caught my eye and my personal fairy tale started to take form.
Yes what better tale could there be than spending time in the TARDIS. If you are at all curious about the TARDIS this link will get you to more info than you could possible want to know. Otherwise it stands for Time And Relative Dimension in Space. Its the Police Public Call Box that the Doctor travels in. Its a Type 40 time and space machine from Gallifrey, his home planet.
I have been a follower of The Doctor Who BBC program for several years so the idea of making this quilt for myself was truly a Fairy Tale. I just don't know why I never thought of it before.
Really as a quilt pattern goes this one called Relatively Dimensional by Hunter's Design Studio was really incredibly easy. Lots of straight seams with 3 main fabrics and a couple of small extra pieces for the windows, lights and signs. The piece finishes at 50 x 80.
The tough part was the wording. Especially the small wording on the white panel. According to the pattern designer you could order a panel with the words for both sections from Spoonflower . The pattern did include a print out of the wording in the correct size if one wanted to embroider, applique or trace.
Me I went to my other toys. The wording for Police Public Call Box is done with Heat Transfer Vinyl cut on my Scan N Cut.
I haven't gotten it quilted yet since I don't have a solid idea as to what I want. Currently thinking scattered stars but not really sure.
So there you have the basis for my personal fairy tale. Sorry but I can't share with you which of the Doctors I will be sharing my TARDIS Fairy Tale with as I'm having a problem deciding if it will be
I'm sure whomever I choose, my Fariy Tale will have a happy ending.
