House block swap

I recently took part in a block swap with friends from the C-R-A-F-T Yahoo group. We each made house blocks that represented our own home, then sent them off to the swap Queens who parceled them back out to each of us.

I sewed the blocks together before we left Maryland and then threw everything into a bag. I put it all together on my mom's dining room table.
Mine is in the middle of the middle row. (I didn't plan it that way, it's just where it showed up):

The close-up shows the floral - I was going to just sash with this, but some of the blocks were too blendy, so I bordered all blocks with a minty green solid first.

The backing is a pale blue sprigged floral - very sort of 80s, I suspect.
