Back in March, when I was still living in Florida and wondering if our house would ever sell, I read that Barbara Brackman was starting a new blog Austen Family Album to host a block of the week featuring Jane Austen and her family. I am a bit of a Jane Austen geek and knew it would be a fun project for me. I pulled all the fabrics and was excited to begin when our house sold just as the first block was released. As I was unpacking my sewing room I discovered all the fabrics I has selected and decided it was not too late to join in. Here are my first 5 blocks.
Just 4 more and I will be all caught up. These blocks are released each Sunday on the blog and you can start anytime as the instructions are included in the blog post as well as some historical information about the Austen family. I know that the woman in the last block is not quite from the right time period but she reminds me of Jane and I could not resist!
