Swapping Stars

I've been swapping quilt blocks on About Quilts. It's a fun way to do scrappy quilts. Here's how it works:
  1. You make a bunch of blocks
  2. send them to the hostess
  3. she sends you back a mix of blocks from other people.

The above blocks are for the Batik and Cream Stars Swap. Before I assembled them, I played a little with the components and made an entirely different star block!

I attended the San Diego Quilt Show for the first time today. Lots of great quilts in the competition and plenty of vendors. I purchased this pattern, Bamboo and Pinwheels. It makes two quilts at the same time, and is written in a work-saving style with COLOR diagrams.
