So I fell off the "no new fabric buys" wagon at the end of last week. It was all due my son's Doctor Who quilt...and my desire to get it finished rather than let it sit languishing.
As I mentioned earlier, he was not impressed by my initial plans to put the blocks together without sashing...he wanted a bigger finished quilt...so sashing I did add...from re-purposed stash. I had planned it for a TARDIS quilt but the fabric was just right for this purpose and still fit the Doctor Who theme but... "No, still not big enough..."
So, this quilt that I've been so proud to say came entirely from stash...well...I can't say that anymore because we have purchased a final border fabric and a backing fabric specifically with this quilt in mind. The fabric came in the mail today from Fabric.com and I do think he chose well anyway...
The Galaxy print for the backing is from Timeless Treasures and the circles print is from Patrick Lose for Robert Kaufman. I will wait for the Boy's final ok when he gets home from soccer practice tonight to start cutting and scheming but I believe we are one step closer to Done!
My next dilemma will be deciding how to quilt it as there is a pretty deep contrast in the dark navy blues and the light vanilla backgrounds on several of the blocks. I am leaning towards a medium grey thread with an all-over grid pattern but have not finalized on that yet. Any thoughts or suggestions?
