Jane Austen Bonnet quilt again




Well, finally.   I am so excited to say that I have managed to get one complete panel of my Jane Austen Bonnet quilt together.  To be honest, I never thought I would see the day.   I know, still so much more to do yet.   Now, though, there is light at the end of the tunnel.   Only three more panels to piece and then join the whole lot together. Yay!

My little phone does not take the best pictures and even with a little editing I still have not been able to get the beautiful warm browns in the fabric to show or the yellowy beige of the embroideries to look as they do in real life.   Hopefully, once I have it all together, someone might be able to take a true picture of it for me.


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I thought I would just add my progress into this last post.    Finally all 20 blocks stitched together.
Next job is to attach a black 1/4" border and a 2"cream border.
