Doctor Who

Hello Everyone,

We are "Whovians" in our house. We love Doctor Who.  Have you ever watched the show?  If you haven't you must!  It has been on TV since 1963!

Anyway, you can imagine how excited I was when I found Doctor Who themed fabric on Spoonflower.


Here are the various designs that I purchased.


My daughter was thrilled with the variety of TARDIS (Time and relative dimension in space) fabric.  A TARDIS is basically a time machine the doctor uses for time travel.


Love the character fabric too!



Got to love this Dalek fabric!


Here is a photo of a Police Call Box.  This is basically what the TARDIS looks like on the outside... but not on the inside!


Here is our current Doctor Who... Matt Smith.

If you have BBC America or BBC wherever you live you can watch Doctor Who.  Or you can download them from iTunes.  Are you a Whovian?

Now I need to figure out what to make with the fabric, any suggestions??

Speaking of fabric... ALL Black and White and Australian Aboriginal fabric is on sale this week in my shop!  Just click here and here to see what is in stock.

I am teaching a paper piecing class today, so next post, I hope to have tons of photos!


Until Next Time...

Huge Whovians here Jackie! And Steven Moffatt has taken us across from the Dr to the modernised Sherlock so brilliantly as well, have you seen it? Love the fabric and cannot wait to see what you make with it. Def a quilt to defeat aliens in any case! xo

There are weeping angels on that character fabric. No no no, couldn't have that in my house. Blink scared me more as an adult than the episodes I used to watch as a kid.

I actually saw the first series on BBC, the daleks scared the wits out of me .... times have changed :-)

it's killing me to stop and comment...on my way to spoon flower now.

I agree with Shevvy! I only watch sometimes while my husband and daughter are definitely Whovians! But I saw that episode and was totally scared! I say make a quilt to tremble under while watching Blink!

now you make me want it all over again.

Hi Jackie,
Whatever you make has to be bigger on the inside than the outside!

Wish our local PBS station was able to show the current shows; we're about a season behind (compared to those on the BBC).

My daughter is a huge Dr. Who fan so I made her a wallhanging for Christmas with the Dalek "exterminate" panel in the center, and the border of the tardises (tardii?) at the bottom. I quilted "allons-y!" on the borders. I never posted a picture on my blog because I wasn't sure about copyright issues--but maybe I should just go ahead and do it. It turned out pretty cute, and more importantly, she loves it!

Anya said...

Oh, yes, our family loves the 21st century Dr. Who! I've liked all three, but I think my favorite was David Tennant.

Hopefully, this comment will work if I can figure out the two-word verification!

Stephanie said...

Never heard of the show. Fun fabric find. I know there is an terrific project on the horizon.

WoolenSails said...

We love Doctor who too, so sad to see the last show, but I know there are a lot I must have missed, so will catch them on netflix.

Where have I been all my life? Never heard of Dr. Who until now. Must check it out.

Regina said...

And here I thought my life was complete when my hubby built a LEGO TARDIS, combining two of my loves - now I MUST HAVE this fabric!!! Not sure what to make with it (although a REALLY REALLY long fabric scarf would be ironic???) but it is inspired!

Trash said...

Something in the air I think, I just spent yesterday evening hunting up just such fabrics on Spoonflower. Loooooads of fabulousness to be found. Looking forward to seeing what you cone

Cindy said...

Love the show! When my husband was young his mom knitted scarves for his 2 brothers. One still has his. Last year my husband decided he wanted one and taught himself to knit to start one!

kidsrn said...

we are whovians here as well! i have been watching since the third dr and now my teen daughter is hooked. she loves the 10th doc and is also a big big cumberbatch fan
(teenage crush). for christmas i made her a tardis quilt. i love the fabrics and will have to purchase some for her. thanks for sharing this find!

Donna Becker said...

We've been stalwart Whovians for quite some time, also following Captain Jack Harkness to Torchwood (a much, much darker show). David Tennant will always be my favorite Dr. Who, although Matt Smith certainly has his own charms.
And I'm headed to Spoonflower right now!

Carol from Panama said...

My husband David is English and he's watched Dr. who since the first episode with William Hartnell as The Doctor. We don't get it on our BBC International here in Panama. But he's able to download episodes and entire seasons from Amazon. I like it - but David is a real aficionado - I think it's a British thing!

Miriam said...

Loove the tardis fabrics!! DH is a Dr Who fan. I remember watching Dr Who as a child and William Hartnell will always be Dr Who to me!

Amy said...

We are Dr Who fans. David Tennant was a favorite for us too.

Time stops in this house when Dr Who is on...Hubby and I watched it as kids (often scared and hiding behind the lounge) and we have inDOCtrinated our family - all the girls watch it but son not so much! Spoonflower here I come! Oh and you have to make big floor cushions to sit on while watching episodes!

Deb said...

Oh my gosh!! I need to get some Dr. Who fabric for my sons!! My youngest and his buddies went as the last 3 Dr. Who's for Halloween. My son was Matt Smith! He had to learn how to tie a bow tie!!

Tonya Ricucci said...

ooh, those are all awesome fabrics. I love the recent incarnations of DW, but can't go back and watch the early ones. Matt Smith is my Doctor. Waiting eagerly for the next series.

Colleen said...

I have been a Whovian ever since I can remember. I used to watch with my dad when it was on PBS. When I had all the DISK channels I recorded all of the current 6 seasons. Im missing season 7 but I will catch up some day. I love those fabrics and periodically search them out to drool! I would love to do a Dr who block swap someday.

After seeing tests like this:

I wouldn't choose anything that needed to be washed.

I loved Dr. Who as a kid! I've watched an episode here & there of the newer stuff.

Barb said...

I never watched it for some reason, but I am over the moon about these fabrics. they will make fun quilts!!

mckittycat said...

Hello. I'm looking for Dr Who fabric for my 15yo son. He has discovered the show on Netflix thanks to a teacher. LOL Both of my younger boys like The Doctor, but middle one likes him more.

I have a pattern called "Hanky Panky" that uses fat quarters I want to use. I'll fussy cut around some though so I'll have to get more than that.
