Downton Abbey–Lady Mary

I am so excited to be working with Andover Fabrics and designing quits for their Downton Abbey line.  I want to share the beautiful fabrics they have for Lady Mary.


Here is a sneak peek.  I quote Andover here, “These stunning fabrics from our upcoming Downton Abbey collection are inspired by Lady Mary, featuring jewel tones and patterns that showcase her style”.

There are mood boards for each character, here is Lady Mary’s board:

Downton Mood Boards - Mary

They did such an awesome job of capturing each character.  I have a box of fabric on its way to my studio.  I have been cleaning and organizing and just plain getting ready for the fabric arrival.  It is due here by the end of day tomorrow!  At that point I will tear open the box and share the fabrics right away.  For now, would you like a peek at what I shall create with Lady Mary’s fabric?  Well, all right then…Regal Mary          This in just a digital image, but before long I will be playing in the fabric.  I have named this quilt Regal Mary.  For those of you using social media (namely Instagtram) this one is #regalmaryquilt.  I hope to share many photos on Instagram and Facebook as well as my blog.  Follow along, it will be fun!  I will try to get the patterns up on my website soon, always so much to accomplish.  Well, I must work quick, I have so much to do before Quilt Market. 

Gotta go to work for the day, Bolts in the Bathtub, see you there!

Blog at you later,
