Hand Quilting Retreat

Goodnestone Park (KENT)

The retreat takes place from 7-15 October 2020 at Goodnestone Park, an 18th century manor house where British novelist Jane Austen used to stay after her brother married into the family. Jane, her sister and mother hand-stitched a coverlet together which is on display at the former family home: (www.jane-austens-house-museum.org.uk/patchwork-coverlet)

Taking inspiration from the original Austen family quilt, US quilter Heather Jones (www.heatherjonesstudio.com/quilts) has designed an exclusive improvisational quilt for the retreat. Finishing at roughly 28″ square and featuring 9 blocks with sashing around the edges, Heather’s design can be kept simple or made complex.
