2015 is the second year Ebony has hosted a Downton Abbey QAL. And it's the second year Barb of Around the Block quilt shop in Cheyenne has hosted a Downton Abbey retreat.
This photo shows the blocks I have finished -- not in the design of the finished quilt!
I've been lucky to attend the DA retreat both years. It's held at the Nagle Warren Mansion in Cheyenne. The Nagle Warren Mansion was built by Erasmus Nagle in 1888. It is one of the few remaining fine homes built during the 1880s, when Cheyenne was the richest city, of its size, in the world. The mansion is located on Cattle Baron's row, where many large homes were built during the late 19th century.

Several attendees sewed with Andover's Downton Abbey fabrics. I made a good start on my English Manor Mystery from LoveBug Studios. Thanks you, Nancy and Betty at Ruth's Stitchery for gathering all the fabrics for me.
Come back on Sunday for the stash report from this trip!
