The UFO number picked for October is #11, which coincidentally was the UFO I swapped out for September, and is a block swap project that has been waiting a long time in the queue.
Scrappy 9 patches are going to be laid out in a zig zag fashion. I copied this layout from a quilt Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville called her Zig-Zag 9 Patch (made in 2005), although hers was made from 2" leader-ender squares and my blocks are from 2.5" squares. Bonnie has excellent references on her site for figuring setting squares and triangles and I will make good use of those. I'll have to count up the blocks already made as the bed-sized layout I drew up requires a few more 9 patches. The setting fabric is the warm buff yardage in the left side of the photo.
This is a very very busy month for me but I do plan to work on this UFO as much as I can, in between finishing the wedding quilt, my outfit for the wedding, more sewing for the wedding, and THE WEDDING, now only 29 days away! DD Elaine is off to her Bachelorette weekend with her sister and friends in Palm Springs, and her fiance Chris is in Las Vegas with his group of pals. I went with Elaine to her final fitting on Thursday and her wedding gown is just perfect on her. Plus, Elizabeth, the seamstress, charged her $100 less than first quoted! Elizabeth is just a doll and so fun to talk to. She's doing two of the bridesmaids' dresses as well, and asked for pictures of the wedding. So sweet.
