When the blocks were sewn together, the sandwich was made and the work was quilted. For quilting, the redwork sets 18th Century Ladies and Gentlemen, Castles, Victorian Ladies, Valentine Angels and some others were used.

The seams of the fabric pieces were quilted with decorative stitches from the machine. To embroider the names of some authors and novels popular in the 19th century, built-in machine fonts were used.

Finally, the quilt was embellished with freestanding lace designs from the Elegant Rose Table Set, Flower Fairy Lace Set, Fan Lace Set, and some others, faux pearls and organza ribbon flowers.
