More on Jane Austen Quilts
It was lovely to see the progress on some of the girls Jane Austen quilts yesterday.
Here is Kerry's wonderful "Longbourne" all finished and quilted. Kerry is giving this very special gift to her daughter's mother-in-law. What a fabulous gift. Her colours are beautiful even though Kerry found them a challenge! Not as much green as usual.
It has been quilted in an all over clam shell style design. Very effective.
Leanne had done lots of work on her "Rosings". She had completed all the appliqué and embroidered stems in the centre. Wow! How gorgeous is the pink and crimson red together?
We trimmed down the centre and we added a pink border and then the dog tooth border.
Next, Leanne will appliqué her octagon strips on the pink background and then she has an amazing red striped border with dark lines and leaves.
Sue has also completed some lovely work for her "Rosings" centre. We were auditioning fabrics for the rest of her borders.
