Forgive me for knowing nothing about quilting, but all the little jigsaw style squigglies there? How are those designed? Most of your quilts seems to be just made out of simple squares but this one just looks crazypants.

I definitely don't mind answering any questions Liquid. The jigsaw style designs are in almost every quilt, I just don't show closeups. If you look at my deviantart sight and click on each of the quilts for a closeup you should be able to see it. When a quilt is made you make the top first, that is the design of the quilt. Then you make the back (normally a solid color, I use black so stains and wear don't show). Then you pick a nice warm batting (the stuffing). You lay them all out and pin them together. Then you sew it all together.

There are a few different ways to sew it all together. Some people sew in the areas where the fabric meets so you can't see it. Some people are able to draw pictures with the thread (I suck at that). I prefer to just wander all over with jigsaw type patterns. So in other words, that pattern that you see is what is holding the quilt together. I think I did the areas where the fabric meets for baby Brocks quilt because the focus was the embroidery.

This quilt isn't just squares too. I actually took time to measure out each area and design the fabric and the colors. I am able to do that for blocky designs. It takes a lot more time then just squares, but the Tardis design is worth it.

And thanks GiantAsian Man!

So the jigsaw stuff is all stitched manually? It's not like some "jigsaw" setting on a sewing machine that is automated? That's insane. Is it as hard as it seems like it would be to keep it all reasonably spaced. If I were to take a Sharpie and try to draw out a pattern like that on a piece of paper it would look like ass.

I can't draw worth crap. If I were to take a Sharpie to a piece of paper it would also look like ass. It took a lot of practice, but it is different then drawing. It is all done manually freehand on my regular sewing machine. There are huge expensive awesome sewing machines that you can put your quilt on and it will do it all for you, but I can't afford and don't have the space for something like that. Maybe one day. Then I could do awesome pictures with the thread instead of jigsaw.

This is why people that quilt always yell at me that I don't charge enough. ;) I charge enough to basically break even on supplies. But I love doing it and it is a great hobby.

I know I'm late to this.... but love the tardis quilt. Even the background is awesome. I liked that you chose to go with a fabric that looks as if this is a midflight image.

I love working with Batiks. They are more expensive but they provide such a great selection of colors to choose from.

For your TARDIS quilt you've actually got a closeup of the "plague" and not the "plaque" :D
