Alas, can it be...the end of Downton Abbey!? Well all good things come to an end and I've been expecting it, although I didn't want to believe it. To help me cope with this momentous loss, I've formed a support group (ok really there's just two of us). We're sewing this quilt using a free pattern from Andover called Fanfare.
Step #1 on attacking this quilt is to cut out 288 fan pieces.
Ok...that wasn't so bad. Only two days of very focused effort!
I've got my castle print fussy cut-twelve of those blocks...check! Now I'll be ready to do some actual sewing at our next meeting of the Midwest Area Downton Abbey Support Sisters...yep, we're madass!
