This is R7 of a 12 month swap. I love charm swaps and 9 patch swaps because they are quick and easy. For this swap you will make two quilt block squares for two partners [4 squares total] using the simple 9 patch design or a variation of the simple 9 patch design. Color and design is up to the sender, but you are more than welcome to communicate with your partners if you have a color preference. But Please don't be TOO specific! Please use high quality 100% cotton fabric.

EACH SQUARE MUST MEASURE 12.5” in raw edge to raw edge. It takes a 4.5" square if your seams are 1/4". If its a little bigger, that’s ok. Newbies are welcome, with at least 10 mail swaps. No unexplained 1’s or 3’s.

Please email with any questions you might have and save the space below for listing your desired colors or make sure to have them listed in your profile. Please use quality cotton fabric. If you smoke, please make every effort to send a block that has not been exposed to smoke. If you can't avoid that, perhaps send a quick note to your partner and ask if it is offensive or launder the block and put a fabric softener sheet into the package to help erase any sign of smoke smell.

Please have a complete profile so that your partner can choose colors that suit your taste, home furnishings, likes and dislikes etc. Thanks and let's have a fabulous swap again!

You must have a well filled out profile to join, I will ban as I see fit. I’m really excited about a great swap.

I love all the rich jewel tones of purples, cobalt blue, blue and yellow and white, silver gold or copper highlights in prints, white based light prints, dark chocolate brown, russet, cranberry, dark red, red/black/white, Hunter green and gold...

... just nothing please that would be at home in the 70s, or cutsy, or a little baby's room.

Hi I really like burgundies, creams, golds, blues, purples, greens, browns. My favorites are thimbleberries and civil war prints. Thanks

Blue and yellow would be awesome! I almost have enough squares for a quilt!

I've made a change in my color preference for the nine-patches--I have a lot of blue and white, but now I'd love some Black/Red/with a little white. I'm going to make a quilt for my lovely Fred and those are his favorite colors.

One blue and white block and one Black/red would be fabulous! The black and red can be the darkest dramatic black and not bright red--he's a dark kind of guy (at least in his mind--he's really the most thoughtful and kind person).
