Ladies of Downton Abbey


I took a little break from machine quilting after working on that huge quilt for my mom. I'm ready to start up again! I spray basted this quilt top, Ladies of Downton Abbey. I think it came out nice and flat. It took me about 30 minutes to spray baste. So nice and quick! Molly, my kitten, grabbed the blue cap to the spray and ran all over the house with it. I looked quite silly chasing after her! She's fun in an exhausting way!!


The backing fabric didn't iron out very well. I just wanted to show the seam. Whenever I have a fabric that has a large pattern, I try to match it up as well as I can. I thought I did pretty good with this one. I tried to keep the castles equidistant. I would have felt awful if I sewed over Downton Abbey!

I spent a good part of my day getting ready for my classes at MQX. Two more weeks! I'm taking 2 classes with Leah Day. She gave us a list of items to have ready for our classes. Can't wait!!

  1. Very pretty quilt, with lots of blank areas in the setting triangles for you to quilt something awesome. Matching backing fabrics can be a chore, but I think it's worth it. Nice job.

  4. That quilt is such a nice finish and the backing certainly is perfect (your seam matching came out very well!). Really a great time ahead, with those Leah Day classes!!! Be sure to give us all detailed recounts of your experience!!! Will be anxiously awaiting your reports!! Enjoy for all of us......................
