Fall Mini Quilt Swap

I can finally reveal my Fall Mini Quilt, which went in the post yesterday! This was foundation pieced using all batiks. I'm really pleased with this little quilt that measures approximately 15" x 22", not my normal size, that's for sure.
I free motion quilted this on my domestic machine with all over leaves. It's been a while since I've done a quilt this way and I'm quite pleased with the results too! I hope my swap partner will be happy with it. I also sent a few other things from where I live, just for interest.
I've also started on the Expedition Quilt Art Challenge quilt for January, this is a sneak peak of how far I've got. I've also got another block done, but these little blocks are only 4 1/2" in size.

But then it's only going to be 12" x 24", again outside of my comfort zone! Small = scary! Thanks Tina!

Happy quilting!
