    Here's a picture (not very good as it's a first using my webcam) of the quilt I made with the strips I got from the strip swap. I did it as a challenge to myself to do strip piecing, cut angles using my June Tailor ruler, make something with triangles, and use only the strips from the swap for the blocks. I added strips from my stash for the sashing, corner blocks and binding. Have not decided on backing yet, but thinking of using some burgundy fleece as combination batting and backing.

    Show more if you can! I donated some strips for the strip swap but I specifically asked for nothing in return - I would love to be able to recognize a few random pieces here and there!
