Here's a little entry in the Large Quilts category that's out of this world. Well, according to the BBC television series of Dr. Who, that is.
Large Throw, 60" x 94"
V & Co. Simply Color Navy Ombre, Navy Batik
Hobbs Poly-Down batting, Shannon Cuddle backing
We used 5-1/2 yards of ombre fabric to get the right lights and darks to create dimension in the door panels. Then we added a little border of night sky to represent the box flinging through time and space.
Because the quilt is so long, I made a separate throw pillow for the light on top.
I stitched in the ditch, then quilted wood grain into the door panels. My daughter didn't want any further quilting in the doors (which kinda goes against my grain, so to speak...).
And, we used Cuddle faux fur for the backing. Yep. It's definitely a cuddle quilt. They love it. The pattern is in the works.
