Another Swap Top Completed

This year I have a goal to assemble all of those block swap blocks that I've been accumulating and turn them into quilts. After all, that is the idea behind the swaps, isn't it? This top is made from a bunch of Blueberry Cobbler blocks made from Pat Sloan's pattern. I really like the look of the two color quilt. Because the blocks were made by several different people, not all of the points match up,but that's okay with me. This isn't one of those matchy matchy quilts. Now I just need to get this baby quilted, bound and hung on the wall in my downstairs hallway.

This is also a quilt made from swapped blocks. These churn dash blocks were part of a friendship swap from an online quilt group that I belong to. I just love the traditional look of the churn dash blocks. This one was planned for my son's bed.


  1. I love your swap block quilts - they look great! I'm so glad I finally found some time to catch up with everyone!

  2. Your swap block quilts turned out absolutely wonderful. Doesn't it feel great to get projects done?

  3. Wow - 2 great quilts created from swaps - they both are wonderful and I bet it feels so good to DO something with that stack of blocks. I too have to work on using some of my swap blocks this year.



  4. Both the quilts look really good. Love the strong brown you chose for the alternate blocks on the churn dash.

  5. lovely quilts. I like the blueberry one too!
