Just snapped a few photos. Let me resize them so they won't be too large. Stay tuned!

Ta-da! It still needs a border of some kind, but that's as far as I've gotten. The photos aren't too great; it's dark in the bedroom and the bed is the only place I could lay out it flat-ish. It ended up being a looong throw-sized quilt. The pattern is called Smoky Mountain Stars, and it's from: http://quiltville.com/smokeymtstars.shtml

Almost forgot. Many of the fabrics are scraps from previous swaps, like the Boomerang swaps and the 6-1/2" brights swap, etc. If we've been in a swap before, you might find your fabric!

moonrise I LOVE it. A perfect pattern for these siggi blocks. Did you use siggi blocks from just this year? I didn't count.

Thanks! I'd been looking at that pattern for quite awhile, and realized these siggy blocks would be perfect for it.

Yes, all the siggy blocks are from this swap. Actually, I needed 4 or 5 extra ones to finish the quilt. On 2 of those I made them "memory"-type blocks, in memory of my grandmother and great-grandmother. They were both quilters and enjoyed sewing in general. On the others I put "Pieced By" and my name, "Hosted By Sharon B", etc.

Very clever. I may become a copy cat.

Couldn't have said it better myself! Solves my brain strain.
