    I know that there are a few families on the board that have been touched by Autism. Timeless Treasures has just come out with a 4-piece group of puzzle piece fabrics. Just in time for Autism Awareness month - which is April.

    Of course, Timeless Treasures probably just made them because they are fun, colorful fabrics for kid's quilts. And I can certainly see them used for pillowcases!

    They ARE fun and colorful. Any child would love something from them.

    Those are wonderful, colorful quilt fabrics! Will part of the proceeds be donated to an organization that works for those affected by autism? It would be a good cause.

    I really don't know if Timeless Treasures has any plans to do that. They might have done that with some of their "pink ribbon" fabrics in the past. It isn't anything that I remember having heard much about.

    Thanks for the information. I've been looking for a puzzle piece design fabric to make a quilt for my son. These look really nice!

    Those are wonderful!! It certainly would make a good pillowcase. My 10 yo DS wouldn't let it near his head, but that's because he'll only use him Batman pillowcase. Part of his routine, ya know.

    Thanks so much for sharing these.

    I have made 3 quilts with different puzzle piece material in a puzzle piece quilt pattern. I am part of an autism support group in Michigan and donated 100% of the money they received from auctioning (the first) and raffling (the second). We just had our 7th annual walk and raised $45,000!

    Hobby Lobby has been carrying a fabric, similar to the last one, for quite some time now.

    Great theme and colors. It's good to see a line that will work for both girls and boys.
