Design Wall Monday

It is still Sunday to me, as I've not yet gone to bed, but it is also 12:08 am.  So I figured I'm OK to post for "Design Wall Monday".  Judy at Patchwork Times hasn't put up her post so I'm not linked yet - I need to remember to do that on Monday.

Here is the part of my design wall that is "new".  Thirty 9-patch blocks made for swapping on our "30's Fabric Quilting" yahoo group.  Half are "X" blocks and half are "O" blocks, which when fit together make a checkerboard top.  I'm hoping by the time I receive blocks back I've figured out a different setting for the blocks - I'd like something a bit more unusual.  So far I've not been able to think of anything.

nothing better then 9 patches!

Sometimes simple is best. This is looking pretty good as it is. Love those 30's fabrics and not a better block to use them in than a 9-patch. What size are the blocks?

I'd never heard of nine-patches being referred to as X and O. Very good description! And now I know how to make a checkerboard quilt! I'm looking forward to what you do when you get your swaps.
