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

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.
This pretty companion book-on-paper is for quilters who want to know more about Jane Austen and her novels, or who want to make the coverlet with traditional (pre-Inklingo) methods.
Complete your Jane Austen book collection with Quilted Diamonds and Quilted Diamonds 2. These are traditional pattern books (pre-Inklingo), which include hundreds of diamond-shaped blocks and classic instructions for hand piecing and appliqué. Even better, the text and the patterns are described with quotations from the six novels. (The top menu bar links to Jane Austen photo galleries too.)
"It was a plan to promote the happiness of all." (Emma)
The diamonds in the Jane Austen coverlet have unusual angles which are not commonly used in quilts, but this Inklingo PDF allows you to print the cutting and sewing lines on fabric with no measuring. It is precise, simple, and fast.
Love the lines. Quilt more!
