We asked the community to submit fabric designs inspired by the idea of living in a Jane Austen novel and they came up with a broad array of styles and interpretations that turned out to be a lot of fun to peruse. The top spot goes to Jean Maze, a first-time winner who put together a design based on quotes from the novels paired with objects from Jane Austen's era of history. Congrats to Jean and to the rest of the top ten!
