This is a beautifully produced book--well-designed and lovely photos. But the majority of the quilts are made from contemporary fabrics (batiks, black and white) in contemporary designs. I was expecting quilt designs inspired by historic quilts from the early 1800s, since the beautiful cover quilt is based on the coverlet made by Austen. Only a handful of the quilts feature reproduction fabrics. In other words, this isn't a book for reproduction quilt or fabric enthusiasts looking for nineteenth-century designs. It's a collection of contemporary quilts loosely related to the author's reading of Jane Austen's novels. A very nice book, but not what I was looking for.

I feel a new kinship for Jane Austen after reading one of her letters included in Karen Gloeggler’s new book Jane Austen Quilts Inspired by her Novels. I did not even know Austen was a quilter, and the book reveals that Austen may have been an apologetic fabriholic. (She purchased 10 yards of a muslin that caught her eye, confessing to a lack of monetary sensibility.) Readers also will get to know Gloeggler better, as she shares her own journey in making this book and inadvertently redesigning the original Jane Austen quilt. I find both women’s stories endearing, and I think this book was well worth waiting for.

Gloeggler makes clear that the quilt on the cover is not completely faithful to Jane Austen’s quilt as completed in 1811. The author accidentally saw squares where there were diamonds in the original quilt, yet captures the color and spirit using new fabrics. Instructions are given for this cover quilt, and a short gallery follows with 6 center medallion quilts inspired by that quilt. Austen’s inspirational quilt is 61 by 93 inches. Gloeggler’s square renovation can be either 93 by 93 inches or 95 by 95 inches, depending on how you choose to arrange the fabric squares (ordered versus scrappy). Both are shown with an optional quaint prairie point edging that may vex beginners. This is the largest quilt in the book.

The rest of the book is given to 6 designs from the author’s imagination, each named for Austen’s novels. 5 of these employ basic patches and triangles. The 6th and last one uses an equilateral triangle block and includes an alternate scheme, looking all the world like the diamonds that eluded Gloeggler’s eye and foil many a piecer. My favorite pattern is “Emma”, which is the smallest project at 33 by 33 inches.

You think you are going to be able to make the Jane Austin Coverlet but she gives you patterns for squares. Very disappointing!

I received this book today and I love it already! Although some of the instructions look daunting(esp the graph charts of the placement of the fabric), I am not afraid to try them. I love the quilts themselves. They are so different than the ones I normally make. I think I will try the Valentine quilt first since I love all things Valentine! However, I want to make the quilt on the front cover as a challenge. Although I only briefly looked at the book, I can tell I will enjoy it very much. I can usually tell very quickly if I will like a book and this one is really nice. I would recommend this book for anyone who is a fan of Jane Austin or not, since the quilts are from another era and will not disappoint!
