    What a great quilt for a boy!! You did a wonderful job and without a pattern?!?! You're much braver than I am!.
    I showed your quilt to my son and he wants one now, so I ordered the pattern from equilt.com and the puzzle fabric. Thank you for the inspiration!!

    The 'puzzle' piece is the symbol for autism, and a quilt like this is on my 'to do' list. Susy, you did an AWESOME job without having a pattern! I started trying to figure out how many different blocks there are in it and gave up :shock: :shock: :shock: How many are there?

    There has been a special production of autism puzzle fabric - which I didn't buy when I should have :oops: :oops: :oops: It has multi-color puzzle pieces - don't know the color of the background. Has anyone seen it? I didn't look at ALL the fabrics during my Bunny Hop madness, but probably should have! Both of my grandsons are autistic, and I want to make 2 MORE quilts for them. They've just about worn out the quilts I've already made!

    Hobby Lobby has the autism puzzle fabric if you are close to one.

    Susy, I love your puzzle quilt!!! You did a great job. He'll love it. What size is the quilt? I'm guessing about 54x74.

    To all forum members---I am trying to find out how to piece this pattern from pics I've seen. How do you think it would look using busy, sports- themed fabrics for the puzzle pieces---would it lose the bold, graphic look that Susy's quilt has?

    TFS.

    Ranger - do you have one of the EQs? You could try pasting your fabric into EQ and putting it into the puzzle quilt to see how it looks.

    Thanks so much for all the compliments! It is 58 X 68? inches, hopefully it will fit a single bed. I didn't know about the autism symbol until I started looking for puzzle fabric on-line, I just saw a picture of a quilt, drew it out and started using my small stash. Then I ordered the puzzle fabric because to me it didn't look enough like a jigsaw puzzle. I did the pieces of each puzzle in 2 1/2 squares. I did try a block in some more "busy" fabric but it definitely didn't fit in very well. Again, thanks to all, your comments are inspiring me to keep on trying(unfortunately since I found this board and got all excited about the hobby, life seems to be getting in the way of it this past couple of weeks)

    Very cute. Love the colors. Your grand son will love it. Another pattern I'm going to put on my todo list.

    Thanks for the measurements Susy. I don't think 'busier' fabrics would work as nicely as the 'bolder' fabrics. Wish I had EQ so I could do as Joanne suggested.
