    My son is autistic too. I love your quilt. They have a puzzle wall hanging up at the ABA center.

    I hope your quilt can bring in lots of money. Insurance paid for part of our son's ABA and Floortime therapies, but not much. I know how expensive it truly is.

    Thank you for posting this quilt and donating it. The world needs as much awareness as possible.

    That's a wonderful quilt! I have the pattern--but didn't know it was the symbol for Autism--now it's even more special. A great one to donate to a good cause. :D

    Thank you for the pattern. I have another pattern for a larger quilt, but I prefer this style and size.

    I work for a mental health agency and autistic children and adults are close to my heart.

    With just two 6.5 inch squares I had set aside for another project, I was able to cut one complete puzzle set and sit have a 4.5 inch square for a small I Spy Quilt I have in the planning/collecting phase.

    I will be going after my scraps :D

    Using this as a fund-raiser is an excellent idea!!!! Thanks.....

    Your puzzle quilts are so cute. Nice bright colors for the kids. I sure hope it brings in a large amount.

    Really cute. It looks like the sewing would be easy but keeping which color went where. would be a night mare. You'd have to plan ahead for sure. I have a feeling a seam ripper should be kept close at hand while sewing it. I'm sure it'll get lots of bids, it will mean even more to many who will see it because of it's symbolism. Good work.

    I see you are on line. Would like to know where you got this pattern. I have a friend with an autistic child and she would love this as the puzzle piece is their logo. Thanks.

    What a wonderful quilt for an autism fundraiser! I have 2 autistic grandsons, and I'm so glad that public awareness of autism is being raised in magazines, newspapers and on TV. May I use your puzzle piece idea for the next autism fundraiser I contribute to?

    Well since I loved this pattern so much, and especially love what it symbolizes, I decided to go hunting on the internet to see if I could find a pattern. This site had the pattern but a little different from the pattern you made. It requires paper piecing for the design but it is so cute I thougnt maybe the other girls that wanted the pattern, or a similar pattern, would appreciate this one. So here it is, downloadable PDF file so you will need Adobe to download it. I guess it is ok to give this site since it is a free pattern.

Every year they hold a "Night of the stars" where there is a silent auction. This is the quilt I am donating for auction. I'm really excited about it I hope it does well.

    I haven't sewn the blocks together yet, just finished the blocks. I'm thinking about doing a border this time of maybe the red and white polka dot fabric.

    Thanks,

    could you tell where you got the patern or is there anyway you could share it on the computer I have the measurments from the earlier post but not sure if all blocks are alike looks like the edge pieces might be different and looks like they are rotated one with the set in tabs goes across and the next one is up and down ????????

    I guess you did not see my eariler post so here is a site I found on the internet. The pattern is a little different but looks more like a puzzle piece. It is a paper pieced pattern and you will need the program Adobe to download it but it is free.
