Color selection
I would like the foreground to be bright and scrappy. Very saturated prints that read as all one color. My favorites are common in the Cotton & Steel palette, Aqua, Mustard, Navy, and Magenta. But anything that is bright and saturated will work.

Please use low volume prints for the "background." I prefer super low volume prints, white on white, or light grey, but use what you have. No solids, novelty fabrics, or traditional batiks. 

Please do not use solids anywhere on the block. Also, please don't use prints that are too large (for example the C&S mustangs print is awesome but wouldn't work well here).
Please name some designers or line of fabrics you like that will help us pick the right fabric for your block 
My favorites are Carolyn Friedlander, Lizzy House, Karen Lewis, and any Cotton and Steel, especially the basics.

Please make the block entirely scrappy throughout. For example on the x-shaped block use 4 different colors in the foreground, and 4 different corner colors on the o-block. When printing please make sure you print it the correct way. 
DO NOT sew the 4 blocks together.  You should make 4- 6.5" blocks.
