That project I've been working on the last week or two and haven't told you much about. I'm calling her Jersey Rose.
This began with a Schnibbles pattern--in fact, it's the January selection for the AYOS (Another Year of Schnibbles) group over at the Pink Pincushion and A Quilting Life blogs--called Jersey Girl. The background I used is a very light yellow--I didn't really like the way a white or cream looked for some reason, so I went with the pale yellow. All of the green "leaf" fabric and all of the fabric for the roses were from my scrap bins.
Here's what the blocks looked like before the roses were added--this is pretty much what the pattern was, although these blocks don't have the sashing or border strips:
And here's a single block:
I'm really looking forward to the Schnibbles parade to see what other quilters have done with this quilt pattern. JoAnne of The Patriotic Quilter blog made hers into fall leaves and you can see it HERE.
I've learned that this month's Schnibbles parade is postponed until Monday, though, so I have the weekend to try to get it quilted and show a finished project. I'll let you know if I'm successful! In the meantime, I'm posting Mister Linky for Scrap Basket Sunday so if my scrappy quilt has inspired you in any way, you can sign up when you're ready to show us what you made!
By the way, do you want to know how to make the roses? If I have time this weekend, I'll make another rose and take some photos along the way--unfortunately I didn't do that while I was making this quilt. Happy stitching!
