Exchange block quilt tops

Hi all!  I've been busy this Memorial Day Weekend piecing my exchange block quilts.

My Bird's Nest exchange blocks from 2012. I probably should have used a robin fabric because of all the robin's egg blues in the "bird's nests," but this chickadee panel fit the quilt colors the best.  This will be a wallhanging for my living room (on the rod where I swap out quilts every few months), so I don't plan to add any more borders.  Thanks everyone for your blocks for this quilt!

My Star-Crossed Cats exchange blocks from 2013 - pieced and ready for the last two blocks.  I love how the corner nine-patches come together.  My friend Shannon will really love this quilt.  Your blocks are so perfect!

I'm looking forward to seeing photos of your exchange blocks too.

Happy Memorial Day!

I have a couple of my exchange block quilts together --- the one this year is going to be a neat one, too. Cindy has gone "hog" wild with doing the same blocks and we've also made blocks from Clair's fabrics. I really like both the quilts you pictured --- obviously you have made good use of your weekend.

These both were great choices, Ruth. Mine are still blocks :(, but I have finished THE QUILT.
