My First Swaps

Since I'm pretty new to blog-land, I have recently entered my first quilty swaps.  I joined International Friendship Quilters and there are lots of different events and activities that you can join and have fun with.
The first swap I joined is the Framed Hexagon Swap.
This is my first attempt:
And this is the one I received from my partner in Australia!  Isn't it Beautiful!!

I had so much fun with my first swap that I wanted to do more.
I signed up for the Mosaic Color Play Swap.  My partner sent me the middle square and I had to pull together three other fabrics that would make a 12.5 in block.
This is what I came up with using her center block:
 And this is what I received in the mail from my partner in S. Carolina using my center block.  I love the colors she put together.
 What fun this is!  I'm already working on my next swaps...
