BOOK ON PAPER (not a download) 48 pages
This lovely book is for everyone who is interested in Jane Austen and the famous patchwork.
You can make a replica of the Jane Austen coverlet with just the JAPM book, but it is far easier with the Jane Austen Patchwork shape collection (download), so you can print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo.
Some of the diamonds in the original are fussy cut and you can fussy cut with Inklingo (video).
Features of the Book
- information about Jane Austen
- close-up photos of the coverlet
- fabric notes
- instructions for English Paper Piecing, hand piecing, machine piecing, and strip piecing
- notes about fussy cutting with Inklingo
- notes about design variations
- fabric requirements
- notes about pressing and finishing
- shapes to trace for templates
Jane Austen Patchwork Mystery 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
The small quilt on the back cover of Jane Austen Patchwork Mystery has a simplified border.
I pieced this quilt top by machine except for the small diamonds for the inner border.

LEARN TO HAND PIECE
The two-hour hand piecing lesson in Quilted Diamonds 2
is like taking a private lesson from me. The beautiful book and DVD are available again.
There is also a DVD lesson in Jane Austen Writing Table Quilts, which is on sale for only $14.95. (Act now, before we realize what we've done!)
There are many more photos of my trips to England under the Jane Austen tab (above), including photos of Chawton, Bath and Winchester.
