Star Block Exchange

I'm back from a long Thanksgiving week out of town visiting friends and family. I hope you all had a great time with family enjoying your thanksgiving feast...we sure did.
I wanted to share with you all the fabulous blocks I received from the star block exchange I told you about several weeks ago. I just got them and each and everyone of them is unique!
The exchange was from the quilting class I take at the local college. Many of these ladies are so talented and put together some really lovely quilts every week. I can't wait to put these blocks together into a nice Christmas quilt for next year. Each block is 12x12 and I received 19 blocks so it's going to either be a really big quilt or a couple of lap quilts.
Several of the ladies have put together their blocks from last years exchange and boy are they beautiful. I didn't have my camera on the day they bought them in so I don't have a photo to share of their finished quilts which were so lovely -- you'd really have to see them to know what I mean. The fancy borders and the sashing they used really did accent each of the blocks.
I hope you enjoy them I much as I do. I wonder do you have a favorite? My favorite is the gold one with the maroon star (top left on the third photo).
