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.
