Dr Who - addictive!!

Well now..........what to do now Dear Jane is finished?
I have completed 2 more blocks from the Dr Who Along.
For those 'Whovians' out there you will be familiar with these characters. I have to do a bit of internet surfing each time I have to do one of these blocks and I am learning a lot about Dr Who I didn't remember from the 70's and 80's..........

Block 2 - Time Lord

Block 3 - K-9

I must say I am getting so into this whole thing I might have to go out and buy the latest Dr Who series on DVD!!!!

Liberty Blue Jane top completed!!!!!

Well here it is 17th June and I have achieved my goal before the end of June!!!! Yes, the Liberty Blue Dear Jane quilt top is completed!!!! The first square, A-5 - Cathie's Campfire, was completed on 5th April 2011, and I finished the embroidery on the Bottom Right Corner last night, 16th June 2013.
The journey however does not end here as once I have decided on a backing fabric I will have to baste and then hand quilt it! That could take me another 2 years or so!!!
If anyone has any ideas on what fabric to use for the backing I would appreciate it, although I should probably use 'Liberty'. I am assuming 2 widths should be enough.
