Introducing “Donwell Abbey”

I am delighted to reveal my brand new quilt, the tenth in my Jane Austen Quilt Collection, called “Donwell Abbey”.

This is the centre, featuring lots of fussy cut scallops, Dresdens and circles.

The quilt has lots of English paper piecing and hand appliqué in bold colours of red, black, gold and a touch of blue.

I have really enjoyed making this quilt.  I am definitely a fan of the colour red and think it comes to life against the black and gold.

I began the quilt over two years ago and am thrilled to now finish it.  It will soon be sent to the lovely Helen Hayes in Melbourne for quilting.

Over the past year, I have given lots of hints about this quilt and taken several style shots along the way.  Here they are.

Now you can piece them all together.  

This will be my major teaching piece for 2019.  Classes are already filling.
