    My Underground RR / DW quilt is finally done!

    This is my 3rd finished quilt this year, a record for me! I started this one in 2014. 12 of the URR blocks are from a swap, I added the rest. This is assembled QAYG. I still have a little hand embroidery work to add, just a few little DW (Doctor Who) easter eggs similar to the ones already added. I am so thrilled w/ this one

    This is the front, the DW blocks are raw edge applique w/ wool letters (as is the wheel rim of the wagon wheel block)

    Two of the DW ee, Hello Sweetie on the log cabin, since she is the center of his world (yes I'm not in the Rose camp, he married River after all) and the boat's name Allons-y

    This is not your average sampler quilt! There are so many unique squares, wonderful choice of fabrics, and beautiful quilting! Quite an heirloom!!

    You deserve to be proud, it is absolutely gorgeous.
    In my dream world, fabric is free and sewing makes you thin.

    I am of the Rose camp and we don't know that her Doctor and she didn't get married in the parallel universe!? Good job on your quilt.

    It's beautiful, Kass. So much work and detail! The pants block is still my favorite....
    Only you could combine 'Underground RR' and 'Dr. Who' and make it work!

    I'm with you! Love Rose!

    And your quilt is fabulous - so varied and interesting and beautifully pieced and quilted.

    An interesting side note on the URR quilts. We live along the Juaniata River which dumps into the Susquehanna River and it was part of the route North. Several years ago, a family was renovating their barn and found a false ceiling. When boards were removed, they found a large piece of an URR quilt as well as a journal listing the names of all of the runners (good word???) who found refuge there. Do not know this number. However, these two items were donated to the Smithsonian in Washington, DC.
