Rietje is Finished

Rietje has posted  a photo of what looks to be a quilted and bound Austen Family Album. Finished!
She has set the 36 blocks side by side and framed it with a chain of squares pieced border.

I recolored her photo a bit but I still don't think the color is as pretty as it is in real life. The pictures she's taken of her blocks over the year reflect the color better, warm reds, pinks, browns and ivories.

Very romantic, sort of like an Austen novel.

And here's the back!!! Again I bet the photo is too brown.
See for yourself at her Flickr files.

(She also has her Civil War BOM, Threads of Memory up there too.)

Congratulations on a lovely Austen quilt.
