The Crumbly Cottage Quilt - Work in Progress

This is my first foray into English Paper Piecing.  






My parents' live in a gorgeous little cottage in Worcestershire and I want to make a traditional looking quilt that will fit right in.

My Mom is a huge Jane Austen fan so I started collecting fabric I thought looked a bit Regency and added prints I thought looked like they might find their way into a quilt over the years.


At some point in the next 10 - 15 years I hope to finish it!

  1. Long term projects are fun! I especially like long term hunting and gathering of fabric. You have some great old timey ones.
