Downton Abbey, Season 4

I am so excited and am sure you are too.  Today, airing Sunday at 9 p.m. EST on PBS, is the first episode, Season 4, of Downton Abbey.  I won’t give away what happened at the end of last season, but as most of you know, it was a shocker!  Based on blogs that I follow, quilters seem to love this show, as do I, and maybe that is why they have designed a new line of fabric called the Downton Abbey Fabric Collection.

Downton Abbey Fabric Collection

 Kathy Hall for Andover Fabrics released this new line of Downton Abbey fabric.  Missouri Star Quilt Company carries it; you can find it on their website.  CLICK HERE FOR A DIRECT LINK.    

It’s a lovely line of fabric with feathers, swirls, tapestry, lace and castles.  So far my favourite is Mary’s Berry and Sybil’s Tulle.  Will I ever make a Downton Abbey Quilt?  Not sure.  It is not on my future projects for this year, but it might be the time to buy some material for future, future projects.  Oh, my, one never knows, does one?

Quotes from Violet, the Dowager Countess:

“Things are different in America, they live in Wig Wams.”
“I was right about my maid. She’s leaving – to get married! How could she be so selfish?”
“First electricity, now telephones. Sometimes I feel as if I’m living in an H.G. Wells novel.”

Tonight I will cuddle up under a quilt, sew binding and watch the drama of Downton Abbey unfold.  Enjoy!


  1. I did the same (well…not the binding)! It was a wonderful 2 hours!

  2. Yes, it was! I will think of you now as I watch each week. Who is your favourite character? I enjoy the character of the Countess, but like many others too.
