Jane Austen Style Quilt

Lately I have been working on putting my civil war fabrics together into a quilt in the style of Jane Austen. I love diamond shapes and when I saw templates to make this quilt at the show in Melbourne, I had to have them! This has been my first time using templates to cut fabric and I find it so much easier and faster. I am putting this project on hold now as I am waiting for some more civil war prints to come in the mail.

On the other hand, I recieved this fine bunch of fabrics in the mail last week. Anyone recognize these? They are Nell's Flower Shop by Moda, which I couldn't resist going for a low price on ebay. I plan to make these in some sort of star design quilt. I still haven't determined the exact design yet...

I love Jane Austin. A new film of her life is out. Look forward to seeing the finish.

The diamond quilt looks very interesting. And the block you drew yourself--isn't that a good feeling when you do something like that?
