I have to laugh when I read my subject line - Downton Abbey - I know nothing about it except that it's a British television show.
I have a friend, though, that loves it and when I told her last March that I had seen Downton Abbey fabric, she joked that I should buy some and make her a quilt for her birthday. I thought, why not! I purchased it in April planning to have it done well before her December birthday. Yup, that was the plan but it didn't happen. So tomorrow I'll be giving her a late birthday present. I never would have dreamed of making her something, let alone a quilt, but when she gave me that idea, I took the opportunity.
Disappearing 9 patch with a pieced border.
First, and probably last, time I've done a pieced quilt back. It was hard to get it centered and if anyone were to measure, you'd discover I'm off by an inch.
The 9 fabrics I used from this line - what a hard decision to make. This is no where close to my style so I tried to think of her house and what would go well in it. She's very Victorian and has said many times she was born in the wrong era.
