DW-SAL-Banner

After much planning, plotting and scheming with some of our awesome, generous and talented Fandom in Stitches Designers, it is a great pleasure to announce the Fandom In Stitches Doctor Who Stitch Along

Each Wednesday for 12 weeks, we will be honoring our favorite Doctor's 50th Anniversary with 12 brand new hand-embroidered patterns designed by:


Each week, we'll stitch one quilt block. At the end of 12 weeks, piece your blocks, add a border and you'll have your very own Doctor Who quilt top!

Look for the very first pattern Wednesday, May 15, 2013!

Approximate yardage to make our Doctor Who quilt:


  • Background (for embroidered center): 1 yard
  • Dark Fabric: 1 1/2 yards
  • Light Fabric: 2 1/2 yards

    1. There's no time like the present to become a Whovian! May I suggest stitching as you watch? ;)

  5. I"m so excited I can hardly stand it. First because it's the Dr. I've watched since the early 70's AND because it's stitchery. I don't think I could stand to start another PPed one. this is great!

    1. So glad you're excited! I thought this would be a fun take-along project for summer. My heart belongs to paper piecing, but it's definitely not my only craft! :D
