I received a VERY special parcel today. I ordered a quilt kit and backing kit from Ebony Love of LoveBug Studios in Illanois,USA late last year as part of her Downton Abbey mystery quilt along. The poor girl was short-shipped by about 16 bolts of fabric on her shipment from the manufacturer so her kits were not dispatched in time. I’ve been following the block reveals each week via email and her blog and have so been looking forward to receiving my kit, and it finally arrived today – I couldn’t get to the post office quick enough!
I chose to receive a kit with all pieces for the quilt blocks already cut using a die cutter. I’m not personally familiar with this process of cutting fabric and I wasn’t confident enough with my own abilities to convert her instructions to rotary cutting which is why I picked a kit that was pre-cut. I have NEVER received such a beautifully packaged kit, embroidery or quilting, before. Check out the photos below. Each quilt block has been packaged separately in black bags and somehow she even managed to send through customs international shipping some yummy Twinings tea to enjoy while watching the next season of Downton!
I am really looking forward to starting this quilt although I’ll definitely be restraining myself from starting it until I’ve got a couple of UFOs complete so I can concentrate on this fully – I’m quite sure this will take my complete concentration to make sure I don’t make a mistake!
