Doctor Who - St. Louis Science Center First Friday

If you were anywhere near the St. Louis Science Center on Friday evening, you may have come across hundreds of people filled with anticipation, waiting for First Friday : Doctor Who to begin.

My Sister and I were amongst the crowd, invited to be part of the festivities, as I was once again showing  The Tenth, my David Tennant pixel quilt, and my Sister was the Quilt Companion...as she so cleverly called herself.

I was smarter this time around and created a flyer, hashtags and social media touchpoints for those who wanted to learn more about the process to create this one of a kind quilt.

I was thrilled to be amongst other fans who adore the show as much as I do and even had the opportunity to taste a bit of the UK, when the Speaker that evening, Dr. Edward Gomez offered me a Jammie Dodger (a well-known British "Biscuit" Cookie) because he liked my quilt so much.

If you missed the opportunity to attend this year's event, mark your calendars because it will be happening again in 2015, and supposedly it will be two days.

The RiverFront Times was in attendance and shot lots of photos...my quilt being one of them. They even created a Doctor Who : First Friday slideshow.

You haven't seen the last of this quilt, as it will be making a special trip next year; but more about that later.

If this event sounds like fun; but Doctor Who isn't your thing...what about Sherlock Holmes?


International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes


The St. Louis Science Center is hosting an international exhibit this Fall showcasing the deduction-wielding hero and they are hosting a corresponding First Friday : Sherlock on November 7th.  I will be there with my pixel quilt, Holy Sh*t Sherlock; which will be making it's debut appearance...as soon as I finish it that is.

If you are in the area, I hope to see you there.

  1. Kristy, I LOVE this quilt & your process. I went back to read it just now and at the time, you hadn't decided how to quilt it. what did you end up doing? Can you post a picture? How will you quilt your Sherlock quilt? I've made one small pixelated quilt and I was quite happy with it, but this is amazing!!

  2. Oh man, I wish I knew about the Dr. Who night. I will be going next year. The Sherlock exhibit is also right up my alley. I'll try to get to it.

  5. Kristy, thanks for having this quilt at last nite's Guild meeting (MRQG-Jeff City)
    Gained inspiration and motivation from your generous presentation. Sure enjoyed it.
    Btw, your demographics for modern quilters are very much the same for the knitting community. Including pop-culture and tattoos
