Austen Family Album - Block #1 done

My aunt sent me a link to a new Quilt a Long project called Austen Family Album.  I am a huge Jane Austen fan and the blocks will all be named for Austen books, characters, etc.

Here is a link to the website:  http://austenfamilyalbumquilt.blogspot.com

A new block will be posted each Sunday for the next 33 weeks.  At first I was not sure if I wanted to do this but eventually decided to give it a try.

But I did not want to purchase any new fabric for this project as I am trying to sew through more of my stash.  So I decided to use up some of the blue fabrics that I have - I have a container of blue pieces and a container of blue fat quarters and larger pieces.  Then I also have some yardage of blue.

So here is block #1 done - it is called Bright Star for Jane Austen

One down - 32 to go!!  

Wish me luck!!


  1. Wishing you luck !!! You block looks good - very Jane Austen-ish. Hope you are able to keep up.

  2. The blocks are going to be easy (for the most part) so you should be able to keep up!
