“I Love The Doctor” Mini Quilt

“I Love The Doctor” Mini Quilt

Any Doctor Who fans out there?  I might be a bit behind on the fan train as this show just celebrated its 50 year anniversary, but it’s quickly risen as one of my favorite shows.  How could you resists a quirky alien who travels in time and space, constantly saving the human race (and others) from some terrifying monsters?

I decided to use my EQ software to draw up a mini quilt inspired by the show.  Using a play on the Doctor’s two hearts, I had so much fun creating this mini!

I Love the Doctor


I found a fat quarter in my stash that reminded me of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey… stuff (name that episode!) so I used that for most of the appliqué and borders.

The gorgeous Arizona sunshine helped me get a better shot of the mini.  I’m going to have to find a place for it on my sewing room wall now.

I Love The Doctor


Pattern is coming soon!  I’m looking for a few testers who would be willing to test this one for me.  It only took me a few hours to make! Let me know if you’re interested by emailing me (Rachel@Quiltineering.com) or commenting here.

If you’re a fan of the show, leave me a comment telling me who your favorite doctor or companion is.  I’m partial to Matt Smith’s Doctor, especially those episodes with Amy and Rory.  Rory is just so darn sweet!

  • I grew up watching Tom Baker and his scarf and jelly babies (and hiding behind the couch during the frightening bits) but I have really enjoyed the new series, especially David Tennant. The wibbly wobbly phrase has popped up in a few episodes of the new series. Bow ties are cool. I hope K-9 comes back.

  • Okay, it’s not just you. We recently started watching.. ahem.. binge watching Doctor Who and are totally addicted. We’re as far as the Pandorica opening. How cool would it be to do a pillow with a paper pieced tardis on one side and your I heart the Doctor on the other side? Allons-y!

  • You ARE sending this to me, right?! I only started watching it last year… earlier this year?! Somewhere in there… But totally hooked. The kids watch it with me because my husband couldn’t care less.

  • Don’t Blink! 😀 At least I think that was the episode of timey-wimey fame. Your mini is really, really cute. Are you ready for the new one on Saturday?!?! I can hardly contain my excitement. 😀

  • When I initially encountered this mini last year, I didn’t get the whole Doctor Who thing. Then, having already watched the old standbys (How I Met Your Mother, Arrested Development, etc.) while sewing, I started streaming episodes of the Doctor and fell in love. I do like Matt Smith’s doctor, but I’m especially partial to David Tennant’s take on the character. My favorite episode is the first one with the angel statues. : )
