Traditional 9-Patch blocks are versatile--you can make Disappearing 9-Patch out of them, and the combinations of colors and orientation and positions of the squares make interesting patterns in the overall quilts.
We'll make 12 1/2" blocks and send two to two partners in their preferred colors-- post your preferences in the comments -- making them by arranging the colors in opposite patterns in each of the two--so 4 light, 5 dark in one, and 4 dark and 5 light in the other. See the swap pic above for example.
Since this is a group swap, I don't expect flakers. This is a good block for newbies, but you must have a well-filled out profile to join.
Tutorial on "The Quilter's Cache" just reverse the colors required in the pattern.
Summary: We will each send our 2 partners two 12 1/2" 9-Patch blocks in reverse color patterns made with their posted color preferences--two colors in printed fabrics, no solids. You can say something like Blue and white with Red, or Brown/yellow with dark green--something like that, and the single color fabrics can have small other colors in the pattern.
The swap is international, because if you press your blocks folded neatly, they can both fit in a letter envelope for minimal postage cost.
