I don’t know about you, but when I saw the very first episode of Downton Abbey it was love at first sight. The gowns, the jewelry, the elegance, the accents! While I’m grateful for modern inventions like Tylenol and air conditioning, I can’t help but feel sometimes that it might be nice to live in style in the early 1900s. At the very least, I think a return of the Edwardian aesthetic is much overdue. Since time-travel is not an option, why not bring back the style and grace of English history with a vintage quilt pattern?
These classic sewing projects bring to mind images of strolling across the grounds of an estate on a sunny day. Whether you’re looking for a DIY home decor project or a beautiful bed quilt, these vintage patterns are sure to be a hit. Lady Mary would approve!
