Kathy's Quilt

Kathy is technically my aunt but since she is only 4 years older than me, we grew up as sisters. I adore her.  She loves tea and is a real Anglophile, we share a love of Victoria magazine and all things pretty.  I had been working on this tea quilt for her and then learned she had been searching for a afghan in blackwatch plaid.  So I ordered fabric for her for the backing.

When I finished the quilt, I still had some pieces of the plaid left so made her a couple of throw pillows featuring her favorite tv show: Downton Abby! 
I gave her "unbirthday" gift yesterday and she loved it.  It is so much fun making unexpected gifts for loved ones.  Just made my day!

What a sweet and thoughtful gift for your aunt -- my sisters are all tea drinkers, and they would love this quilt.

how fun! I am an anglophile too. And I'm the barely older aunt in our family!
