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'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 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!
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.

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.
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.
