First, let me say, thank you to @frenchie46 for letting me carry on this swap. :-) I'll be hosting them for a while as I have -lots- of these blocks to make personally and having to make them for swaps is keeping me motivated. And now, onto the swap.
In this swap we are going to make some really scrappy CrAzY FuN 9 PaTcH. @frenchie46 found a video tutorial and some written out directions to make this block - it is so simple and fun to do.
The block is super fun and modern perfect for beginning quilters and experts!
The video has a stack of three different fabrics and that is how we are doing this swap. So, making one set = making 3 fabric squares into 3 crazy fun nine patch quilt blocks.
Start with 11- inch squares of fabric, this should leave you enough wiggle room to trim your block to 9-inches to send.
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.
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, ask away. :-)
Newbies are allowed with filled out profiles.
If you receive 2 crazy nine patch quilt blocks from your partner you must rate a 5.
I will cover flakers, but you will need to give the flaker a 1 rating. No unexplained 3's or unresolved 1's. If you have any, message me letting me know what is going on. If you don't, you will be removed before I assign partners.
I hope this swap is something fun you will all love to do! For an idea, this is the quilt I'm making with these blocks.
