Front of quilt

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 love it! I am a big Dr. Who fan. Would you be so kind as to share the pattern? I'd love to make my brother and myself a similar quilt. :)

    Runa you are amazing. Your TARDIS quilt is fabulous. I would adore it if you would be willing to share your pattern. My son would absolutely love to have one. He is willing to help make it as well.

    Hi, Runa. Is there any way you can send me a copy of your wonderful pattern for the Tardis Quilt? 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).

    My grandson aged 4 is mad about Dr Who so I would like to make him a quilt using your Tardis pattern if possible. It would be great if you could send me the pattern.

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
