Jane Austen Quilt

Jane Austen Memorial Trust

The Jane Austen Patchwork shape collection would not have been possible without the gracious assistance (and detective work) of

  • Mr. Tom Carpenter, Trustee of the Jane Austen Memorial Trust
  • Louise West, of Jane Austen’s House in Chawton
  • Sarah Howard, Hampshire County Council Museums

This downloadable shape collection is the first comprehensive, accurate pattern for this outstanding patchwork coverlet. It includes everything you need to make your own replica. The attention to detail is fantastic. The illustrations are beautiful.

A choice of methods

When the Austen ladies were stitching their patchwork at Chawton, there were no sewing machines. English Paper Piecing (EPP)was a favorite choice, but Inklingo’s precise lines for stitching and cutting—perfectly printed on the fabric by the hundreds—make it easier than they could have imagined in the early 1800s.

The diamonds in the Jane Austen coverlet have unusual angles which are not commonly used in quilts, but Inklingo allows you to print the cutting and sewing lines on fabric with no measuring. It is precise, simple, and fast.

“It was a plan to promote the happiness of all.” (Emma, Ch 53)

Love the lines. Quilt more!

    I am about to start my Jane Austin replica (using Amy Butler fabrics). I continue to be awed at how much easier this is going to be with Inklingo! Not measuring and figuring angles and templates is truly amazing. All I have to concentrate on are fabric choices. This collection complements Linda’s book Jane Austen Patchwork Mystery.

    Diamonds are a girl’s best friend? This is another one of my favorite collections. My Jane Austen Patchwork (JAP) is still a work in progress but I wanted to review this collection to let others know about its versatility. The shapes in this collection can be put to other use! I used the large diamonds to make a star tree skirt, the vertically split diamond to make 2 color hot pads and the horizontally split diamond to make coasters. These are really cute when you fussy cut your fabric. Even if you never do a JAP, this is still a great collection to own.

    I love every one of the Inklingo collections that I have. They are easy to use, and so accurate! I can’t wait to see what shapes Linda comes out with next!

    This collection is amazing. With the odd angles of the diamonds, this is probably the best (if not the truly only) way to make a reproduction of the Jane Austen quilt.

    I love Inklingo! I finished making the Jane Austin quilt top with Inklingo. It was so easy to print all of the large diamonds and the sashing. I did hybrid piecing with this quilt. The match marks helped so much! I machine pieced the large diamonds to the small sashing pieces into the diagonal rows. Easy, peasy! Then I hand pieced the rows to the long sashing pieces and then joined the rows together by hand to complete the quilt top. It was so easy and went together so quickly and accurately. I did not do the small diamonds, but instead made a wide border in place of the small diamond pieced border. I think that the quilt turned out beautifully with easily detailed directions.

    This is one on my favourite collections.
    I love the ease of printing both the large and small diamonds.
    The sashing match marks make putting the top together a breeze.
    It works perfectly with scraps as well.
