I also finished January's Row of The Month for By The Bay at Fun Threads. If I'm honest, I'd have to say I'm a little disappointed with this being considered a Row of the Month and I'm sure glad I downloaded the pattern while it was still free :) I think I would have been annoyed had I paid $2 for it.
That boredom thing I spoke about... well it lead me to yet another Quilt Along... this one is a Mystery Quilt Along at Love Bug Studios that started on January 4, with a new clue/story and pattern revealed every week until February 8. It was the name that caught me :) Downton Abbey's English Manor and while I really wanted to use official Downton Abbey fabrics, I figured it would be almost over before the fabrics arrived and then I would have been rushing to finish it before I leave for England, so, I made a trip to Fabricville yesterday and with some help from one of the ladies chose a palette, trying to keep as close to the colors as possible. I struggle with choosing fabrics for a project, doing so for a 'mystery' quilt is quite mind boggling. I cut the pieces for the first three weeks and now I can start sewing.
