March 07, 2014Those discordant sisters look like they're getting along pretty well in fabric form. Introducing Downton Abbey fabric from Andover. I am told that this fabric will be appearing in costumes on the show in the 2015 season - whether that's true or not, I love how they work together. From the top is Mary's ribbons, Mary's plume, Sybil's Tulle and Edith's Swirl. As I said in the product description, I doubled up on Mary because I like her best. She's aloof, wears great clothes, has a few great looking men pursuing her, and she has pots of money.

Working on a wee crib quilt in these pretty shades of yellow and pink. I know, it's a little on the sweet side but I couldn't resist. I was going to do something very modern next but I found a really good tutorial here for this hourglass pattern. It has been very quick to cut, sew and assemble, at least so far. I am using a combination of old scraps and some new fabric. Now I just have to wait for the batting to get here to finish it.
