First Swap Block - Done!

This is a banner day!  I participated in a block swap for the first time and I just finished the block.  It is the pattern for Block Four of the Fat Quarter Stars Quilt Along.  The pattern is called "Fiesta Star" and the colors requested from my swap partner were perfect for the pattern.  Here is my version of "Fiesta Star":

A look from another angle:

I love the combination of these colors.  The chartreuse fabric is Theory from Anthology Fabrics, and the hot pink fabric was dyed by me.  The black and white fabric is from my stash.

I hope my swap partner likes it.  I love what she sent me:

It's perfect for the aqua and red quilt that I want to make. 

I wanted to get my block out before I leave tomorrow for a conference.  It's almost midnight and instead of packing, I'm quilting and blogging.  Priorities, priorities, priorities!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and shop 'til you drop!

  1. I love this block, you did a great job!! I'm new to blogging as well, but you get the hang of it quickly. I found you on flickr, I just joined the Japanese X and + bee. Also over at Lily's Quilts she is hosting a small blog meet and if your new to blogging or have under 50 followers you can link up. It's a great way to meet others and to be met as well. I hope your having a great day!
