I am really excited about three by three, the nine patch swap that twiddletails is hosting. I really enjoy making nine-patches and love the numerous possibilities with fabric and quilt patterns that incorporate them. Instead of just picking two fabrics and making all my blocks with them, I will be making a variety. I am also using this method which I think is fun, fast, and fairly accurate. If you are making 6" (finished) nine-patch blocks too, you can use this method by cutting your starting squares at 7 1/2" and your strips at 2 1/2".
The rules are that you have to use two fabrics per block and that they have to be medium or dark, not light. This is what I have so far and I am starting to question whether some of the fabrics I picked are considered light. Do I need to start over?
