Each year we Blockswappers exchange a set of blocks.  This year it was four log cabin blocks to make for each other.  We had color and fabric criteria.  I didn't get as good of pictures as I would have liked as they were hanging down a hall at the Expo...6 on one side and 6 on the I couldn't get far enough away when I was taking the pictures.  This is Irene's.  She added the stars and a block border.

Mike added applique on the corners...which I really was pretty.  This is for his wife, Sue.

Jan made this one.  She's in another block exchange where they traded half square triangle her a head start on the outer border.

Merle added flying geese for a border.
Tracy added wool applique to hers to make this stunning showstopper.  It won viewer's choice in the large quilt division.  Quite an honor.  Instead of scattering each person's blocks, she sewed each persons into a block with the lights at the center where she added the applique. 

Julie added 3 borders to frame hers.  Notice the layouts of the blocks on each quilt....each dfferent.

Altho Cele isn't a member of our group anymore, beings she was a new bride, we made her a set of blocks and Mike put it together and quilted it as a gift from all of us.  The rest to follow.
