If you’re a fan of Dr. Who, you’ll know what this is. For non Whovians, it’s a time machine that looks like a blue police box.  TARDIS stands for Time and Relative Dimension in Space.piecedgoods, Tardis, Tardis Quilt, Quilt Tardis, patchwork Tardis, Tardis baby quiltA working Tardis can transport its occupants to any time and place in the universe and is much larger on the inside.  This one is a baby quilt and has been launched off to expecting Dr. Who fans with best wishes for an extraordinary life full of fun dreams and adventures.piecedgoods Tardis Minkee BackIt’s backed with plushy Minkee – the backing of choice these days in this household.piecedgoods Tardis Windows And pieced out of whatever looked cosmic and time travelish in my stash. I especially like that the windows seem to glow in the light.

    This is awesome! Is it your pattern or where did you get the pattern?

    • piecedgoods says:

      Thanks! I drew up the pattern on graph paper. Each square is 2-1/2″ square, and pretty much everything on the quilt are squares with the exception of the windows and the bar across the top where on a ‘real’ Tardis the words ‘Police Box’ would’ve been.

        Thanks! I have several huge fans of the Doctor in my family, so I might have to give it a try. It really is a great quilt and you should be thrilled with the outcome. 🙂

    What an excellent job…as a Dr Who fan of many years standing it is great and a quilter of many years the combination of all those blues is very clever – particularly the cloud fabric for the window glass!!

    I love this! Do you have the pattern?

  11. Anna says:

    How many differnt patterns did you use? And how many yards of each pattern?

    • piecedgoods says:

      Hi Anna,
      I don’t have a pattern for this but I made it up using graph paper. Each square represented a 3-1/2″ square of fabric, and the quilt is largely made up of all those squares (the only exception being the windows) I don’t know how many different patterns of fabric I used. It was made up of things I thought fit the theme and color from my considerable stash of fabric. Hope this helps!

      • Anna says:

        I laid the quilt on a graph paper. I understand that each squares are 3 ½”. Do you know the dimensions of the white windows and that long strip of fabric on top of the windows?

  12. Deacon says:

    I am a “WHOvian from way back. Is it possible to purchase this pattern so I may have one made for myself?

  13. Cathy says:

    Would you be able to make me one of these in a King Single?

    • piecedgoods says:

      Hi Cathy!
      I love that you like the quilt so much you want one! As much as I love this one (and others do too!) I’ve realized that I can’t duplicate quilts. Part of my adventures in quilting and other art is making things work as I go along! I’m toying with putting up a pattern for the quilt though since I’ve had numerous requests! Cheers!

    This is absolutely amazing! Love the color combos and how they blend so well. This truly incorporates quilting, art and an excellent theme. I know that you have not made a pattern (would by it!) so I wanted to clarify some things in the posts. Are the squares 2 1/2 or 3 1/2? Is that as cut (therefore decreasing by 1/2 to account for seams) or after sewing together? Also, what is the finished dimension of the quilt? How did you determine the dimensions of the TARDIS? I am truly amazed at what you have done and can only hope to make something close for my husband.
