Where's my sonic screwdriver when I need it?

I'm making progress - the doors are done - the sides are framed in, and the TARDIS base is on.  I decided to do one more drop shadow around the entire door to frame it in - so had a run of very very long and very very narrow pieces to put on.  The good news is that I am getting better on my mitered corners and didn't have to unsew any of them.

The next step is the top of the TARDIS, which will involve either paint, stencil or applique to do some lettering - not sure which route I am going to take just yet.

I did swap out one fabric in my master plan.  I had kind of a peachy marble fabric for the backgrounds - but it just wasn't doing it for me.   I like the fabric and will find a use for it eventually - but it just was not right for this project.  That's one of the pitfalls of buying fabrics online - sometimes no matter how good the images it is hard to tell how it is going to play in person.

Luckily in my stash I had this kind of beige mottled fabric with white stars all over it.  It seemed to fit the overall theme of this quilt without detracting from the TARDIS, and with 2 yards to work with, I think I will have plenty to finish up the sides.

Current measurements - without the top portion of the TARDIS, are 40 x 59.5
