WIP Wednesday: Downton Abbey

Are you a Downton Abbey fan? We viewers in the US are counting the days until January 3, 2016 , when the final season of Downton begins. UK fans -- don't tell me what happens!

I decided I should finish up my two Downton Abbey quilts before the final season begins. Thanks to a major blizzard in Colorado Springs today, I had a full day to sew and sleep. Look how much I got done on Ladies of Downton Abbey:

More than half the blocks for this quilt! Our school district is closed tomorrow, so I should be able to get the quilt top almost finished. Yay for snow days!

Saturday is my 4th Blogiversary -- come back to celebrate with a big giveaway!

  1. I am a fan Downtown Abey, too!!!! And your Quilt is so cure!!

  2. I have mixed emotions about the start of this season's Downton. I can't wait for it to start, but I don't want it to be finished forever. ;-(

    Love those blocks.

  3. I agree...I can't wait for Downton Abbey to start but I don't want it to end...beautiful quilt...enjoy the snow day!

  4. This was so funny to read this morning because I am also currently working on 2 Downton Abbey quilts! The first is all fabrics from last years collections being worked up into Lori Holt's Great Granny Squared design. The second is a "modern" pattern being made with the Christmas Collection. After that, I can't wait to use the Downton Abbey Celebrations collection in something, too!!! I just love these fabrics!!!

  5. I've just started watching Downton Abbey so I am a long way from the final season -- and that's a good thing! :)

  6. Oooo I so want to tell you !!!!! Though we still have The Christmas Special to see on Christmas Day xxxxxx

  7. It has been a great series to watch, though I doubt the downstairs staff had such great lives in real life way back when!
    Glad your enjoying it : )
    I'm waiting to see The Walking Dead series 6, I know, abit different true but Ive enjoyed the characters in it, rather than the gore!
    I don't have the tv channels to watch it now, so have to wait till I can buy the dvd sets lol
    Love the Downton blocks!

  8. I am a lapsed Dowton Abbey fan. I watched regularly, then life got in the way of TV. We have Netflix now. I should try to catch up. The last I saw was the one with the car accident that ended badly!

  9. Pick me, pick me for Arcadia. I would love to receive that quilt kit. I hope this is where I am supposed to comment. If not, it's my loss. Take care Aunt Marti - you're the bomb!!! Debra Broyles
