LADIES OF DOWNTON ABBEY
The kit arrived today. Yeah! Love this one, and can't wait to get started, but it will be 2014 before that happens, I do think. I really like how this one incorporates fabrics from all 4 Downton women's lines.
But, I also must say that I love Violet. She is my favorite character. I want to be her when I grow up. And I also am called to this quilt from her line. Applique and piecing mixed - a favorite of mine.
This quilt, from the fabric manufacturer, Andover, calls to me too. There are many patterns out there for this fabric line, and of course, you could use your own imagination too. Here's a link to Andover's patterns.
I know the fabric is flying off the bolts. I'm glad I ordered as soon as it was available. My kit is from The Fat Quarter Shop. Now I'm eager to see what everyone makes with Downton fabric. I've seen other 1920s lines coming out too. A new trend, like CW or 30s? Do we all secretly wish we were flappers in the 20s?
