More Austen Family Album blocks

Today I made 3 more blocks for the Austen Family Album quilt and I am almost caught up! Once I made the block using the medallion of the woman that I showed in the last post, I was inspired to add a few more Jane Austen inspired details.

In this block's center I used a piece of fabric that looks like some stitching that Jane or her sister might have done.

This block includes a background fabric that looks like a stitched sampler.

And this block uses a fabric with script writing reminding me of how she would have written her books by hand.

Each block seems to be more fun than the last and I hope I am able to find other interesting fabrics in my stash to continue to add little details. Such a perfect project to ease back into sewing.

So gorgeous! I really love these fabrics. I picture this quilt on a pine,cannon ball bed in a room with warm honey colored wood floors and white paneled walls. Ok....so that was fun imagining taking a nap there! ;)
