Crazy Fun 9-Patch

In this swap we are going to make crazy scrappy 9-patch blocks. The block is super fun and modern, perfect for beginning quilters and experts!

There is a video tutorial at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkxLJhm2wPI

The specifics:

Start with 11- inch squares of fabric, this should leave you enough wiggle room to trim your block to 9-inches to send. Remember, it is better to have the block come out a little too big, than too small.

You will be making 2 sets of these 3-blocks-a-set. You will have 2 partners. You send each partner 1 block from each set and keep one block of each set for yourself. REPEATING TO BE CLEAR: Make two sets of three blocks. Send each partner 1 9-inch block of each set, 2 blocks total. This leaves 2 blocks (one from each set) for you to keep!

No holiday or religious fabric! Otherwise, fabrics are SENDER'S CHOICE!

No single surround centers. In other words - when finished each block should contain 3 pieces of each fabric. If you have any questions feel free to ask!

If you receive 2 crazy nine patch quilt blocks from your partner you must rate a 5.

You must have a 4.98 rating to join. No unexplained 3's or unresolved 1's. Newbies are allowed with filled out profiles.

I will cover flakers, but you will need to give the flaker a 1 rating.

Note: I have taken this swap over, as I would hate to see it end! I would like to finish my quilt. :)

am I crazy or doesn't 2 sets of 3 blocks per set =6 blocks are we send a total of 4 and keeping 2?

@polkadotty Correct! You will have six blocks total. You will send one from each set to each partner, meaning you get to keep two to add to your own collection. It sounds confusing

@Polkadotty and other people thinking about joining, feel free to join this swap for October, as well!

Hi @thislifeofa

Thinking about joining this swap as a newbie. The description reads as though this is part of a series…is it? Or can I join in with this one? :-)

@threadsandbobbins Yes you can join! It is a monthly swap, but anyone who wants to join can. I joined in the middle and then took over when the original host was done. Have fun!
