Jytte's Gardener's Journal + Tis the Season

My friend Jytte in Denmark joined the GJ SAL when we started it.........Jytte doesn't have her own blog but she joined in and blogged to the SAL blog as part of the group..............
When I finished up the GJ SAL and moved onto the TTS SAL Jytte said she would not continue as she didn't want to sew a Christmas project. But she promised to send me pics of her GJ once she finished it..............
TAAAAADAAAAA..............gorgeous isn't it...............well done Jytte and thanks heaps for being part of the GJ SAL............all hand quilted.............
but wait there's more..............now remember I just said she she wasn't doing the TTS SAL................
BUT
she saw the book in a patchwork shop in Denmark and HAD to buy it and start the quilt............
she just needs to add the borders...............
it looks great Jytte............
This is what Jytte said she is working on now
"My next quilting project is 'My Garden' from Lynette Anderson' and I have bought the 'Christmas Fun' BOM also, so there will be more Christmas.
I am completely crazy with hexagon flowers and for the time being I sew the quilt from Vignette with stitchery on 59 blocks."
Well all I can say is well done Jytte and thanks so much for keeping your promise and sharing pics of your finished A Gardener's Journal.
