Looking for a pattern
I am looking for a specific pattern. I hav found its name on quilts for sale with no chance of a pattern,
Names are; Egyptian jigsaw puzzle, Japanese jigsaw puzzle.
Has anyone any idea where I can find one. It looks like offset diamonds is best to explain.
Google Japanese Jigsaw Quilt Pattern and you will come up with many patterns and images.
shiboridragon.com has it.
It's called the Japanese Puzzle block. AKA Pine Bark pattern.
It's one of my favorites.
Google those two names and you'll see a bunch of different techniques.
But there are some "cheater" methods out there that don't give quite the same effect.
The best instructions I ever saw were in a Quilter's Newsletter from the early '00's.
I can't find a picture of mine but I did it with batiks.
Which really wasn't the most brilliant thing to do.
Unless you're a really, really organized, neat worker.
I had a separate mat (I drew on the back) just for the JP.
I always planned on making more.
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH ESPECIALLY DEBRAK. I have been looking for this pattern for 2 years and have always found quilts but no pattern. Next project will be this long awaited quilt for ME.
I have never seen that pattern. It looks like a good challenge. Please post pictures of your progress and finished quilt.
Thanks DebraK for the link -- I too have been seeing the quilt but did not find the pattern.
I wanted to make one to already for some time.
This tut makes it very clear to me, so thanks!!!
you are very welcome. I just happen to stumble upon it ;-)
