The group did a LOT of swaps. We started a block swap where someone had a month and sent out fabrics to the others and got blocks back. We didn't have a name for the group, it was called Swap Without a Name. I shortened it to SWAN and it caught on. We swapped for several years. This quilt is made from one of those swaps. I pieced the top YEARS ago! The blocks were from 2003 or 2004. It marinated long enough and I quilted and bound it and finished it this morning.

Interestingly two friends made me wallhangings to match the quilt! I finished them and have been saving them all these years waiting to finish the quilt! The first one was made by my late friend Debi. She sent the top and I quilted it myself. The second one was made by my friend Joann. She asked for extra fabric and made a "big block". I added the borders and quilted it.
I pieced this shop sample for Your Best Friend's Quilt Shop. Christina (owner) had the stratas sewn, I cut them and assembled the top.
