Dr. Who is on the frame...

This one should have been quilted before now:

Outline and McTavish quilting w/ALL-time favorite thread...clear mono-poly!

...lucky for me I've been granted a much needed extension by the intended recipient ;-)

Was having a little trouble trying to decide how to quilt the Dr. Who fabric filler blocks and decided to take a que from the pattern in the fabric itself and utilize some 'circle' quilting.  Seems to be working quite well:

Adding circular quilting to enhance the circles on the fabric...perfect!
While making final quilting decisions last night and going through one of Angela Walters' books for some much-needed inspiration,


I stumbled across her 'pulley' quilting motif which will work perfectly in one of the white picture frame borders...Thanks, Angela!

For now, time to get back to the quilting FUN!

UPDATE 1/07/2014:
Dr. Who Quilt blog links from start to finish:

Dr. Who coming off the frame...FINALLY!: 


  1. that's going to be another stunner, Deb! I really like the texture that pebbling adds and I just did a quilt using the 'pulley' around a frame - not quite as nice as Angela's, but same theory...

  2. Thanks Miss Katie!
    My 'pulley' quilting probably won't look as good as Angela's either but, I'm still goin' for it ;-)

    Thanks for stoppin' by...
