multitude of quilt block patterns available, the decision was an easy
one for sisters Kathy Brookes and Carol Koenig, owners of Sisters'
Corner since 2007. Their research led them to the naming of the Sister's
Choice block by the Ladies' Art Company in St. Louis about 1890, in
honor of British novelist
Jane Austen and her sister Cassandra. They were devoted sisters and
lived as single women in their family home their entire lives. Cassandra
lost her fiancee early in her life and never married.
Jane died while in her forties. Kathy and Carol knew that the Sister's
Choice block was an ideal reflection of their lifelong love of reading,
needlework and floral design.
