Doctor.Who.Along Block 4 ~ SS Madame de Pompadour

PLEASE NOTE – these patterns have been removed are no longer available

This week it's Soma's turn for block 4 in our installment of the Doctor.Who.Along QAL on Flickr.

SS Madame de Pompadour
SS Madame de pompadour

Pattern and instructions can be found on Soma's Blog or on Craftsy.
This block has a lot of little pieces but no difficult angles so it's a slow and steady wins the race kind of block.  I recommend some uninterrupted time, good music, and possibly also a favorite beverage.

I used various Kona gray's for the ship and Lizzy House's Constellations fabric as the background which just happens to work perfectly.  So you might want to snag some up while it's still available.

Don't forget to add your finished block to the Flickr pool - there are so many amazing blocks in there already - it's so fun to see all of your hard work!

I am currently on summer vacation in Canada, but I'll be back next week.  In the meantime, happy sewing!

Doctor.Who.Along Block 3 ~ K9

A Time lord's best friend ~ K9.

I've always been fond of K9 - all the way back to the Tom Baker days.   Maybe it's because I'm a dog lover.   So here he (or she?) is in block form.

I've added some"K9" stitching on the side to jazz him up but that is totally optional. He looks good without too!  See?

This block is probably the easiest block to piece so far. So you can breathe a sigh of relief!

The pattern can be downloaded here or through Craftsy.  In case I didn't mention it earlier, 'cuz I often forget stuff like that, Soma and I are posting all these patterns on Craftsy, so they'll be in one easy to find place.  But if you don't like to have to login to get stuff, then you can always find these patterns on our blogs for as long as they are around.

And as an added bonus, I have made an embroidery file for those with embroidery machines, that has the K9 embroidery.  If you would like a copy, please download it here.  Format is .exp but can be converted to other formats in your embroidery software depending upon your machines format.

Happy Sewing!
