Downton Abbey Mystery Quilt Along

LoveBug Studios is doing it again! Join in the worldwide mystery quilt along as we all tune into our local PBS stations on Sunday nights beginning in January. Happiness Is ... Quilting! will be offering a limited number of quilt kits for this fun Downton Abbey Mystery Quilt Along. All you need to do is sign up for the quilt along and choose your "team" - Team Carson, Team Cora, or Team Rose! And, HIQ! will be including a Downton Abbey tote bag with each kit purchase! The quilt is all patchwork using common quilting shapes, easy enough for confident beginners. The quilt finishes 72''x92.'' Last year's quilt along attracted almost 3,300 participants from all US states, 9 Canadian provinces, and 24 additional countries. Order your kit before the end of the month so you don't miss out!
