Jannie, there are so many ways to use these blocks! You can look through the past two 9-patch blocks swaps Sewbizgirl has hosted this year to see what other members have created. Or you can go on Pinterest or Google and simply type in " nine patch quilts ". There is the Single Irish Chain pattern, the Sisters Choice pattern, Snow Balls and 9-patches, on point layout, and many more... So many ideas! Hope you join us!

I found one on Pinterest that I really liked. It was the 9-patch blocks and Friendship Star block alternating. I might do that. https://pin.it/ej6zsruawidlmk

I was planning on using mine in an Irish Chain, too. I really like that one with the alternate friendship stars! It's a fun quilt that really lends itself to scraps.

I want to do this swap, have to purchase Kona fabric before I PM you though. Can anyone tell me how much fabric I should buy?

Just taking a wild guess... but maybe a yard or yard and a half?

Sunrise, I'm finding I am getting approximately 50 9-patch blocks out of 1yd. I liked the feel and weight and the weave of the Walmart Waverly 100% cotton white carried at my local Wally-world. I know not every Walmart is the same, but my one sells fabric by the one yard bundle, so I bought two of them.

Hopefully no one minds that I'm not buying Kona cotton?

generally speaking you can cut 15-17 2.5" squares from a width of fabric depending on how wide it is .

Oh, absolutely not! It’s up to you to decide what to use. There’s no requirement to use Kona. I just ask that your fabrics not be too thin. I’m sure we will end up with a nice mix of fabrics.
