    I made this Dutchman's Puzzle for my youngest son. It's machine pieced and hand-quilted. I quilted it with dark blue thread 1/4" in from the edges of the colored triangles and also parallelling the edges of the green border. It completes his room very nicely. And he loves it . . . the best part, of course! :-D

    Looks great. So colorful. Also think the wall hangings are great and match quilt well.

    Thanks! I painted the pictures last year and based the colors on the fabrics from his quilt. The room paint looks a bit minty in the picture, but is very lime and was chosen to match the green border in the quilt. I figured he'd have the quilt on his bed for many years to come, so everything else should be based off that . . . lol.

    Thanks for the compliments everyone. This one was a real learning process in matching points. Lots and lots of points.
