AYOS - Jersey Girl

For a few years now I have loved seeing the Schnibbles parades and have always wanted to join in, but I just wasn't quick enough to complete my top in time!  Well this year I am trying again :)

Here is January's selection, Jersey Girl.  You can see the original quilt and buy the pattern here.

So yes the original was supposed to be 36" square.  I made mine just a tad bigger, it is 89" square :)  I used Midwinter Reds like the original (because I loved it so much!!) but used 3 layer cakes to get the reds and creams.  I will use the beiges in another project.

You can see the other Jersey Girls HERE and HERE.

January NewFO

This year in my endeavour to blog more I am going to really really try to blog about NewFO each month :)  For those who don't know, NewFO is run by Barbara at Cat Patches and is a great incentive to start new projects :)

A list of this months participants is here...

OK so this month I started my strawberry quilt...

This is actually now finished, quilted and binding done, but I will post completed pictures another day :)

Next I started a quilt based on a Schnibbles pattern Jersey Girl.  Now Jersey Girl was supposed to be 36" square, but I wanted something bigger to fit on a queen size bed, so used layer cakes instead of charm packs :)

Here it is in progress...

And here is the finished quilt top.  Each block is 25" finished size and a 5" border, making it 89" square :)

Don't forget to check out what everyone else has been up to this month!
