100% Cotton Panels
Riley Blake designs have created these wonderful panels to save you the time and effort of English Paper-piecing. Taken from a coverlet made by Jane Austen, her mother and sister Cassandra, these panels have been produced from photographs of the completed coverlet, which was originally made in 1811.
Simply attach the border pieces to the centre panel to create a finished quilt top of approximately 158cm/62 inches x 180cm/71 inches. We have a large range of blenders, including Makower Linen Look cottons for your binding and backing needs.
