A Chawton Cottage Romance—A Jane Austen-Inspired FREE Quilt-Along


Every dedicated quilter MUST be in want of a Jane Austen-inspired sampler quilt!

A Chawton Cottage Romance takes inspiration from all things Jane: from the coverlet she sewed, from her life and times, and from her novels. Named for her home—Chawton Cottage, which is now the Jane Austen House Museum—this sampler quilt features prints from the Jane Austen at Home collection by Riley Blake Designs.

Using these fabrics, each quilt block in the sampler quilt is linked to the stories we love.

  • Northanger Abbey—The Log Cabin block
  • Pride & Prejudice—The Jacob’s Ladder block
  • Sense & Sensibility—The Pinwheel Star block
  • Emma—The Pinwheel Galaxy block
  • Persuasion—The Birds in the Air block
  • Mansfield Park—The Chevron block
  • Sanditon—The Borders and Assembly
