Dalek Love Quilt

I think my favourite craft projects are Trees and Rich joint efforts and this quilt is one of those joint efforts. I'd like to share with you all our "Dalek Love Quilt".
So the fabric is a little bit crinkled in this photo, but it is a pretty awesome quilt. Rich designed the fabric and we bought it from Spoonflower. Sadly, this is the only "dalek love" fabric that will exist in the world ever as the BBC contacted Spoonflower and asked for the design to be taken down as it was in breach of copyright.

his fabric does include daleks which the BBC does own copyright for - but I thought Rich's design would be far enough removed from the original to cause any issues. There's not much that can be done about it I guess, but it does mean this quilt really is one of a kind.
I used some fake fur for the back of the quilt - I used fleece for my last couple of quilts, but I didn't have enough when I decided I needed to finish this quilt NOW so I used what was in my stash. I think it turned out pretty well.
Here's a close up of the fabric - daleks and love hearts galore! Although you can't buy this fabric on Spoonflower anymore, Rich does have some other fabric in his shop if anyone wants to check it out.

Ha! Rich stuck it to the maaaaaaaan! I'm glad he managed to get this design out before it was banned ;). The colours are beautiful and all your house guests are bound to try and slip off with this cozy beauty! xx

Daleks, love hearts and fake fur? Now that does sound quite unique, definitely made for snuggling, not exterminating! I rather like the fact that the fabric is totally one-of-a-kind, makes is really personal and special to you two. xxxx

That is such a cool print Trees, I'm glad you and Rich managed to get hold of some for yourselves before it got banned. You two make a great team, you're both so talented. xx

That's so very cool!

I wonder if they're trying to take down all Dr Who themed things as there's heaps of other fabrics, knitting patterns, cross stitch patterns, jewellery, tee shirts etc spread across the known universe. It'll be a long haul for the BBC!
