Block 36 Modern Envelope from the Austen Family Album
by Becky Brown
Here's Anamaria's plan for setting the 36 blocks.
Each week I've told a little history about Jane Austen, her family and her times, and given a pattern for a pieced block that symbolizes her family and friends.
The blog address:
Marie-Louise's Block 7 for Aunt Phila
Blog-readers post their blocks every week on our Flickr page.
Marie-Louise Ardonceau's Flickr Photostream
I'm quite intrigued by Marie-Louise's set of blocks.
In every post I include a portrait of a member of Jane Austen's world,
such as this one of Aunt Philadelphia Austen Hancock.
Marie-Louise's Block for brother Frank Austen
Marie-Louise is printing the portraits onto fabric and
piecing or appliqueing them into each block.
Marie-Louise's Block for Sister-in-law Eliza
Marie-Louise's Block for brother Edward Austen
Can't wait to see this set together!

Remember, Jane's birthday is December 16th. She'd be 239 years old. Have a party.
Time travel can be upsetting to one's sensibilities, however.
Thanks for the giggle! Marie-Louise's block are wonderful!ReplyDelete
Same as Beethoven's birthday - could it be a special day for geniuses to be born? Lovely blocks, Barbara - thank you for the blocks and the snippets on the Austin family.ReplyDelete
