October UFO Finished

As you may recall, my quilt group, peace by piece, is having a monthly UFO challenge.  The random number drawn was #1.  So, I had to complete the piecing on my "Happy" charms quilt.

I had two of these charm packs, Happy by Me & My Sister for Moda Fabrics.  I love Me and My Sister and MODA fabrics.  LOVE THEM!!!!!!

I had seen Missouri Star Quilt Company's Disappearing Nine Patch Tutorial and decided I would give it a try with these charms.  I really wanted to add a solid to each of the nine patch centers so that I would have the smallest squares all the same, I just wasn't sure what color to use.

Then I suddenly remembered the beautiful bundle of hand dyed fat eighths I got a while back from Dye Candy.  The oranges and yellows worked perfect and I had some great yellow solid left over from a different project.  I think it turned out great!

I used two charm packs plus the solid squares in the middle.  I ended up with 10 nine patches so I still have one extra nine patch that I will either put on the back or make into a pillow.

The quilt measures 42 in x 42 in.

The sun was going down behind the quilt and makes it kind of look like stained glass.

Zachary flew past on his broom stick while I was taking this picture.
  Happy Halloween!
