Jane Austen Patchwork
This classic diamond design is perfect for machine piecing or for hand piecing with freezer paper templates, although the original quilt was made before there were sewing machines (about 1800). There are detailed hand and machine sewing and pressing instructions, as usual in Linda's books. This is the first accurate pattern for the famous coverlet. This lovely book includes many close-up photos, information about Jane Austen, and everything you need to make a replica or a smaller variation. The mystery refers to several unresolved questions about the quilt and Jane Austen's role in making it. Published with the assistance of the Jane Austen Memorial Trust in England.
