Design Wall Monday--August 6, 2012

On my design table today is the UFO pick for August, which on my list is another 9 patch swap block quilt project, this one from an online Yahoo group I belong to called Quiltbuddies, but haven't been active in for the past several years (since I started blogging, actually!).  So these blocks have aged for a bit.

After discovering a former Quiltbuddy named Bonnie Hunter and her Quiltville website, I saw her Zig Zag 9 patch and knew that's what I wanted to make with my swapped blocks.  These are totally scrappy 9 inch blocks unfinished, which are a lot larger than those Bonnie used (she made hers from 2" scrap squares), so I drew out my own pattern.   I'll use that very neutral tan for the setting squares and triangles.  Bonnie included the Zig Zag 9 Patch in her previous book, Adventures with Leaders and Enders; it is even on the cover.  My fabric is washed and I'm ready to get cutting those setting squares and triangles.  See more design walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.

Hmm, I can't recall that quilt, but I've got the book. I'll have to check it out.

There is something so much fun about making 9 patches. I should just make a million of them and use them as alternate blocks for my orphans. Love it. Was there a time that Bonnie Hunter was on a online group, unbelievable! She is so busy now!!!

This is going to be a great quilt. You just can't go wrong with a 9 patch quilt of any kind or a Bonnie design. Can't wait to see more.

Sounds like you have a plan, which is half the battle with a UFO don't you think? Looking forward to seeing this one come together.
