I did get the 2nd Downton Abbey top --
stitched together--
the 16 blocks in the center were originally suppose to go on the first one I make--
and there was lots of these 3 1/2" squares yet to make--
but like I said--I really really liked it when it got to the point were I did stop--
so this is how I used the rest I had already made up--
I even have the binding all made for this one--black again--

and this is the project that I am doing to use up the rest of this line of fabric-
9-patches with a black center--
I will have a dozen done when I am finished sewing these together--
I am sewing these together as "leaders n enders"--

Now--I am still trying to figure out what BOM's I want to do this year--
we know that I am doing the 'color of the month'
I joined--

and today I found a second one I want to do--
by sewfreshquilts.blogspot.com

You can make this quilt in a lot of different sizes--but this will probably be the size that I make mine!!!
as this year I have all my Christmas fabrics in a nice tote that I can get into easily--
this month is the double stocking--
so have picked out some fabrics for the first block-
I did discover though that I will need some nice greens for this quilt--
Time to go shopping!!!!!!!!

And I am pretty sure I want to do the seasonal wall hanging from-

cause I really like their first block--a rabbit pulling a wagon with eggs and chicks--
and I will do this in wool--I do love working with wool!!

I do have a couple more that I am thinking about--

Enjoy the moments-di


  1. You are such a busy bee!!! I have decided I will try to do the Christmas one too--slowly. The bunnies are very cute too!!

  2. Hi Di ,gee you do such beautiful work and i think you will have a busy year,thankyou for sharing the links.

  3. Great finished quilt top and I like the black centres in your 9patches...
    Both your BOM s this year look like fun ones to make...

  4. Congratulations on the pretty finished top! And the nine patches are looking rather handsome on the design wall. So glad to see you are planning to quilt along for the Have A Jolly Little Christmas QAL, Di. Good luck with your hunt for green fabric!

  5. Hmmm...apparently I didn't read blogs yesterday. How is that possible? That Christmas quilt looks really cute. I'm not doing any BOM's this year. I want to finish some of the stuff that gets carried over year to year on my TO-DO list. And I'm making good progress so far! Of course, as I see all the cute things you're making, I may change my mind.

  6. I like both of your Downtown Abby projects. A great way to use up the rest of the fabric. I want to do the Christmas quilt, but not now. Maybe I can play catch up later. I'll just enjoy watching yours come together.


I love visitor's---and I really love to read your comments--sooo don't forget to leave me one!!!!:-)
