    This is my second puzzle quilt. Like I said before, my son has Autism and the puzzle is the symbol of autism. Dillon (my son) goes to the Cincinnati center for autism for ABA therapy. They are AWSOME! Therapy is very expensive. Insurance does not pay for autism therapy so they rely a lot on donations for familys that can not afford treatment. 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,
    Carrie

    It looks great so far, and I like your idea of the red border. I hope it brings a nice sum of $ at the auction.

    Okay, that does it. I've just fiinished my last quilt and have been cruising for a new project and you've just given it to me. Thank you!! I didn't know that the puzzle was the symbol for autism. My daughter is an interventionist working with autistic children and I would love to give her a quilt like this. I see you listed the strip sizes. Thank you again!!!

    If mine turns out half as nicely as yours, I'll be happy.

    Looking at this quilt again and lovin' it all over again. Where can I find a pattern for it, do you know? My husband's grandson is autistic and the family always participates in fund raisers. This would be a wonderful surprise for them to auction off.

    I got the pattern at Joann's a few years ago. I'm not sure where you would find it now, but I put the sizes on page one if you wanted to try without the pattern.

    Thanks,
    Carrie
