A Jane Austen Quilt Collection Show

Two of my students, Sharon and Jan, are very clever with their colour choices for their Jane Austen quilts.

Sharon has made every one of the first five quilts in a different colour way for her mother and her sisters, but "Rosings" is for herself.

Here it is, on a stunning black background with orange, green, gold, red and purple, topped off by a glorious William Morris poppy border.


Here is a close up of the centre.  Wow, doesn't the applique just sing on the black background?


Then here is Sharon's "Longbourne" in wonderful reds and grey blues and teals.



Also a "Longbourne" design, but totally different, here is Jan's version in purple and teal.  So feminine.



Fabulous work, ladies.
