I joined my first block swap and made 15 blocks, five each of three different blocks. In return I received 15 different blocks. The quilt below is the small throw/wall quilt that I made. I finished this quilt on Christmas Eve. It is pieced by machine and hand quilted. The finished size is 34 inches x 34 inches.

The quilt I designed required 16 blocks plus setting blocks, so I made an additional block. The dark border and binding are forest green, which is hard to tell from the photo. I quilted snowflakes in the setting blocks and various designs in each pieced block.
