Jane Austen Mini-Quilt

The Liberty fabric I ordered finally arrived, allowing me to finish my Jane Austen mini-quilt. This little one is for a private swap with Bry. We both made inspiration boards and shared some favorite Austen quotations and characters and then went for it. I was reading a Mansfield Park transposition when I started thinking about this one which must have influenced the choice of quotation.

This was my first time working with Liberty fabric was as soft and fine to handle as everyone says. I had to turn the tension way down on my sewing machine in order to assemble the patchwork strip. Here’s a view of it on the back of the quilt.

    Very very pretty and a well chosen quote, Bry will love this!

      Thank you! I certainly hope so. The Liberty is a little more orange than I had anticipated so I don’t love the color combination as much as I wanted to, but I think it works together when you take a step back.

    So pretty! What Liberty fabrics did you use in that strip on the back? Was it a bundle or something? I love those colors!

      It was a bundle that I bought from a seller on etsy, so I don’t know which fabrics they were. I went to Liberty when I was in London last summer but couldn’t bring myself to pay the price for yardage. These were very small pieces that I started with.
