Getting Back to "it"

I promised my son a Doctor Who quilt...









I have even done a few blocks..
 

 
But not nearly enough...so now that he is back in school, I shall begin again...

These patterns can be found on Soma's and Caroline's blogs...along with many others I have yet to tackle.

I decided to dip my toes back into paper piecing with a pattern from the College Blog Hop Soma hosted called Chemistry...I think it goes well with the backpack block I designed for the hop.

For some reason I managed to print it out 7 inches square on my printer instead of 10 and so it is a bit small...I am going to border it and use it as-is though in a someday quilt.  Thanks to Lilja and Soma for a kickstart back into paper piecing and a fun nostalgic block.  

I remember early morning Freshman Chem lab being a sleepy place.  I managed to spill a bit of acid on my jeans one day that gave me quite a surprise when I washed them in the laundry and found swiss cheese holes!!

Hope your August is off to a good start!!

Cute Dr. Who blocks. Whenever I paper piece it takes me almost all day to do one no matter what size they are.

Love Dr Who. I'm really, really, really sure you promised me one as well! :)

I never heard of Dr Who? but I like your blocks and any young man would love these featured in his bedroom...which means he must be tired of his bird quilt?

I did the same thing to my jeans in chem class! Your paper piecing skills are great. Get that doctor who quilt done!
