Jane's Cross Quilt (+ a giveaway)

This is another quilt I made for Riley Blake to take to Quilt Market in October and never blogged about. Jane's Cross was inspired by the fabric line Ardently Austen, by The Quilted Fish.



I called it Jane's Cross after the fabric line and also because the blocks ended up reminding me of medieval crosses of some sort.

I love the Ardently Austen fabric line so it was lots of fun to sew up! The text prints contain Jane Austen's words. The teacup and teapot print is adorable, and I loved the cameos.. I just loved it all. :D




Chain stitching was def. my friend, and the big blocks came together fairly quickly.


Here's the quilt on my couch..



I barely finished it in time! Here it is in the booth.



And then back home again. :)



The pattern is in my Craftsy shop and I also have a bag of scraps to give away of Ardently Austen. :)
Just leave a comment and let me know if you're interested in the scraps and I will pick a winner next Wednesday!



Thanks for stopping in! Thanks everyone for coming by to enter!

***Edit: The winner of the scraps is Betty (Betz2u) Congrats Betty, and thanks for entering!

I love scraps and this quilt is sooo cute! Love it!

Love the quilt. It does remind me of medieval times. I would be more than happy to re home your scraps as I'm working on a scrappy star quilt and these colors would be perfect with what I already have.

Thanks for the chance - Rina

Kim said...

The fabrics are so pretty! Would love to win. These would make fun buntings.

Kathy E. said...

Of course, I would adore your beautiful scraps! I make patchwork bibs from scraps and these scraps would make lovely ones for some lucky babies! Jane's Cross is gorgeous!

I am a crazy Jane Austen fan and would love the fabrics! Your quilt is perfect.

Lisa Marie said...

I'm always interested in scraps and make lots of things with them. Right now I have a stack of about 30 scrappy pot holders that I plan to pass out to family, friends, and acquaintances. I think of it as "spreading happiness". Of course, in my world, happiness is fabric cut into pieces and sewn back together! I don't have any of these lovely fabrics so the scraps would add extra variety and interest to my scrappy projects. Thanks for sharing!

I am not a Jane Austen fan, but I have a friend who is, so we visited the Jane Austen museum in Bath, England. It was okay, but what was really cool was the Fashion Museum there in the same city. Showcased was fashion through the ages, and of course, the empire-waist gowns that were worn during Jane Austen's age. (I preferred those, even over the modern dresses, because they are so classic and pretty!) Thanks for sharing your scraps!

This quilt is so pretty! *i love working with scraps more than large cuts.* scraps make their own statement.

margaret said...

I forgot to say I'm interested in your scraps! Of course i am.

This quilt is beautiful, Kelli!! The fabric is lovely, too. My daughter is a Jane Austen fan so I'd love to win that bag of scraps. Hmm, wonder what I'd do with them? Maybe work them into the scrap quilt I'm trying to build for her? You know, made of scraps from dresses I've made throughout her childhood. Anyway, love seeing your talent blossoming so beautifully! I know Grandma Lee would be pleased!

I love the quilt and the fabric! Fabric scraps are one of my favorite things. Thanks for the giveaway and the chance. lraetaylor at gmail dot com

I love a good text print. I think the only Jane Austen book I ever read was Emma.

cjmont said...

love this fabric line, would love to make a tea cozy and coasters for my friend jean from england.

EmileeHope said...

How did I not know about this fabric line?!? I am a huge Austen fan...one of my children is named after her...so I would love these scraps. I would probably make a tote bag of some sort-maybe with little books on it? I am so excited!

Cecilia said...

Beautiful quilt! I love the quilting on it. Thanks for the chance to adopt your scraps. 😊

Carol said...

That is a fun quilt -- the design is unique and the quilting emphasizes the fun pattern. I would enjoy the scraps!

Havplenty said...

Yes I would say this pattern resembles a medieval cross like something I could expect to see in Game of Thrones. Such creativity. If I were to win these scraps some would find there way into sampler QAL I am currently participating in and some would go into my PSQ.

I love your quilt. Those fabrics would go perfectly with my hand-pieced hexagon quilt. Thanks for the chance to win.

That is a really beautiful quilt. I love the color combinations. Thanks for the chance to possibly win a bag of scraps. Daisy

Beautiful quilt! You have a good eye for fabric. I just found your blog via Google+ and would like to see more of your work.

What a gorgeous quilt and such a fun block design! And the quilting does so much to accentuate those big and bold blocks. Beautifully done!

GranChris said...

Great quilt. I'd love your scraps, I'm making a string quilt right now.

Beth said...

Oh, what fun! I used up all of my Ardently Austen, every little bit, and would adore having your scraps. I'd put them to good use in making some little Dresdens--the darling pattern in the Quilters Planner has me hooked on them and makes excellent use of 2.5" squares.

I love your quilt! It is going on my wish list right away.

Georgia said...

This old English teacher would love those scraps! Love your quilt!

Huge Jane Austin fan so of course I would love the scraps. Lovely quilt. Congratulations on the new pattern!

Bonnie said...

Those fabrics are wonderful. How fun to include some sentences from say, Sense and Sensibility, in a quilt? Or whichever books the text comes from. I love the colors too. So count me in on the drawing.

Of course I'd like a free bag 'o scraps! Perhaps I need to pursue a gig sewing for others and by a deadline; I'm mostly externally motivated anyway being a 'people pleaser' myself. Then I could actually finish things! It would be like school term papers, but way more fun. Followed you from over at A Quilted Passion's linky party.

The colors are so beautiful that I hope I win.

Bonnie58 said...

Love the quilt and the fabric. thanks so much for sharing!

Hi!
I love Austen, that fabric, and your quilt. WHAT A GREAT COMBINATION!
thanks

Lisa J. said...

This is a beautiful quilt and pattern. The crosses do look Medieval. Save the scraps for someone who is more likely to use them and thanks for linking this gorgeous finish to TGIFF.

Kathy said...

Love that quilt block and the fabrics you chose. Next stop is Craftsy to put this pattern on my wishlist! Thanks for the opportunity to win the scraps!

This fabric line is so fun- I love Jane Austen! Your quilt definitely works with that theme. Awesome job! I would love the scraps, too!

I love scraps! These cheery colors would be perfect with the hexies I am making or (depending on the size) would be the perfect start to a new quilt.
