Wanda brought some show and tell to class on Thursday --- and I made her bring it back to the next class on Friday, because her quilt is SO NEAT!
Wanda is also the sweet gal who gifted me with the neat seam ripper/tweezer combo the other day --- love love love it!
She is an admittedly avid Dr Who fan ---and I have to admit that I’m pretty clueless about that show, though quite a few friends are into that one ---and then the OTHER half of my friends are into the Downton Abbey series, and I just don’t have a whole lot of time to keep up with anything so I’m stuck in reruns of NCIS and CSI ---
Wanda even explained how the blue of the borders represents the color of the TIME MACHINE.
TIME MACHINE?! Man, I am SO out of the loop!
When I first read the saying on her quilt, I thought she was talking about Dr. Seuss! --- didn’t he just have a birthday? LOL!
Dr Suess, Dr No, Dr Who --- Calling Dr Love! ((Okay, now get THAT song out of your head, am I showing my age yet?!)) And how about Dr Doolittle? :cD I'd like to travel with Dr Doolittle in my dreams come to think of it!
I love how the uniformity of the light sashings between the small crumb blocks adds some unity to the chaotic piecing. Her fabrics were so fun to look at --- little bits of everything!
And didn’t she do a great job on her Word Play letters? ((Tonya I hope you are catching this post!))
Can you see the quilting in the border? It’s perfect ---she used an edge to edge design called “circuit board” FUN!
If you haven’t picked up a copy of Word Play Quilts yet ---and you want to learn how to do the lettering, I have copies available HERE. I love what adding words to a quilt does ---don’t you?
Thanks for sharing your quilt, Wanda! Love it to pieces and back!
