The April Block is Hot-Crossed 9-Patch
I’m calling the block I dreamed up for us for April, Hot-Crossed 9-Patches (HC9P). The directions for the block are here:
You may make and enter a maximum of 9 blocks for chances in the drawing at the end of the April.
White – solid or white-on-white (WOW) print. If you are using scraps, you may use multiple whites in the same block.
Plaid – Woven or printed plaid fabric. In honor of Earth Day later this month, you may use reclaimed fabrics.
Contrast – A solid or tone-on-tone print that compliments and contrasts your plaid. This can be one fabric (per block) or two–quilter’s choice.
If you make multiple blocks–the maximum allowed for chances in the drawing is the usual NINE–you may use the same plaid in up to three blocks (with different contrast fabric to make the fabric in each block unique) and the same white in all your blocks.
