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.Read more ›
