what to do with block swap and other left over blocks

I figured I'd show some ideas on
what to do with block swaps
(or at least the ones I participated in) either way, maybe you can get inspired.

Now with this I used EQ7, gotta LOVE EQ!!!

First I showed you the RED and WHITE HST... all 96 of them!
here's some EQ ideas for that.
 #1

# 2

#3

#4

#5

#6
Which one would you pick??? Now remember they are all different HST, but whatever extra fabric I need I will get from my stash or buy it.

Now these are from a Karolina color block swap, each measures 9" when done.
So here's my ideas

#1

#2

#3

#4

#5

These were actually NOT from a swap, there's 4 x 12" blocks that I needle turn appliqued, it was part of a BOM online on a blog, have no idea which one now and I lost interest in it, I may have the paper work for 2 more blocks but that's it, but again I don't really want to work on them.
so here's my ideas
#1

# 2

#3

#4


This is also not a swap, but blocks from a bunch of FQs in red,white and black and also some asian flair, it was a pattern in a book (that WASN'T accurate, so I reduced the blocks etc and made them work) now lots of them are directional, so I wasn't sure what to do, they are not directional with type on them but some are birds, some are a scallop or a fan sort of. there's 36 blocks

so here's my ideas

#1

#2

#3

Here's a spring swap from last year, the colors were just SPRING, and oh boy, they are all SO different! honestly my 2 really stick out. there's 12 total, but my two are UGLY... so I don't know
here's some ideas
#1

#2

#3

#4

Lastly a fall leaf block swap, that we did pretty recently! now the blocks are 12" so they are HUGE and there's 24! so that would be a big quilt if I used all of them or 2 medium if I split them up.
here's my ideas again

#1

#2

#3

#4

#5

#6

What do you think? I'd love any feedback!

RED WHITE HST : 1-6
color block swap : 1-5
blue applique : 1-4
red white black : 1-3
spring: 1-4
Fall leaves: 1-6

Wow! Wish I had that software! My favourite is ANY of the black, red and grey projects, but all of them are amazing.

Wow! That's a lot of designing going on! I'm so impressed....your projects are just amazing!

What's the difference between the color block swap #4 and #5? I really like #3 there, but #5 with the corners like #3 would be cool too.

Red-white: #2
red/white/black: #3 maybe?

Wow it is hard to decide which would be best!! Good luck!

If I need help with EQ - I'm asking you! I am impressed, but for my 2 cents:
first - #6
second - #3
third - #4
fourth - #3
fifth - #3
sixth - #1

Wow! How creative you are! I love #5 of the red and white. Looks like candy canes to me in this format. :)

You are such an inspiration to me...will be reading and learning much from your lovely blog! And then, I'll have to try and find time to sew & quilt!
