This quilt was made as a baby shower gift for a friend who is a big fan of the British shows "Dr. Who" and "Wallace & Gromit". For the TARDIS, I used the proportions listed as the "official" proportions for prop on the show. The Sheep is Shaun the Sheep from "Wallace & Gromit" (do note that Shaun is holding the TARDIS key in his mouth). The stripe pattern should be recognizable as matching the pattern of Dr. Who's scarf (12th season / Tom Baker's scarf from the Dr Who Scarf patterns site). I quilted it by outlining the TARDIS and planets with varigated thread. On the back side, it looks as if you are seeing the TARDIS disappearing to who knows where.

I don't know if you would ever consider making and selling one but I would just love to buy one. My daughter is a big fan of Dr. Who and my son-in-law just loves Wallace & Gromit. This would a perfect wonderful gift for them. If you see this and would consider making and selling one please contact me at

I have a friend who just had a baby, and she is the BIGGEST Doctor Who fan imaginable! Her email name even says DoctorWhoLoyalist! I think she'd be tickled pink to have this quilt for her baby boy.

Thanks in advance (and hoping you can help me out).
