Not only was the quilt itself a very late housewarming present for my friends, but I'm also late in sharing it with you guys!
 

This was entirely sewn by hand in the traditional crazy quilt style, except the binding was sewn to the edge by machine, and then folded and hand sewn to the backing. Hand embroidery as well. Lap-sized, but more work than a Queen-sized machine-pieced quilt, for certain!

I got many of the fabrics through spoonflower, many of which no longer appear available (lucky I got them when I did!). The rest were pulled from my scrap, and range from quilter's cottons to flannel to taffeta. (No velvet, since one of my friends does not like the feel of velvets and velours, and a quilt needs to be snuggled.)

I think this is my most favorite quilt I've seen on here, so it has to go into my 'Holy Crap' pin folder. Love.

I love a good crazy quilt, and what a great way to incorporate those themed fabrics.  It's very well done.

I love all the fabrics you've used and I think I've fallen in love with the quilt Cheesy its awesome. This probably is one of the coolest DW quilts I've seen.

I love that this is Doctor Who inspired both in theme (the fabrics are great!) and in color scheme. Oh how I wish *I* were your friend and in need of a housewarming gift!
