    Since they're 2-1/3 x 3 (not square) - you'll have to watch which side you're sewing. If those are the only 2 fabrics on a 9patch, it might look like a big checkerboard.
    You may want to add in another color, maybe even a solid white to separate the 9patches.

    I think I would make a checkerboard. Easy enough.

    If you decide on a 9 patch, I'd go through and cut them all to 2 1/2 X 2 1/2.. that way they will go together quickly and easily.

    Another idea would be to make them into 4 patch blocks and then put a shashing between them as you sew the blocks together.. That would also be better if you squared them up first.

    Take a look at the 4 patch block quilts around.. they would all work find I would think!

    Good luck..
