    If this works (first time trying to post a picture) this is my jigsaw puzzle quilt that I made for my grandson. Hope I'm doing it right.

    I've never made one, so don't know if it is "correct" or not. But I think it is really cute! Love the colors/fabrics. I especially think your puzzle border is a nice touch. Good job.

    The bright colors and the black and white print really go together well. Great job putting it up like that. I need to try one of these too. It looks like a great quilt for a boy.

    Thanks so much for the compliments. I didn't use a pattern, just found a picture & kind of copied it. It didn't look like a puzzle to me so I ordered the puzzle fabric from the US (even with exchange and shipping, the fabric can end up a lot cheaper than Canadian, sometimes). I tried the meandering quilting, enjoyed that too but it doesn't look that great close up!

    You did a great job! I too love the border, it really sets it off!

    What did you do, cut squares and piece them?

    yes, they are 2 1/2 inch squares and it had to be pre-planned, usually I just wing it with colours (so far the colour choosing is the hardest for me & doesn't seem to be getting any easier, I wander around & then give up & leave). I also don't have a real stash yet, either and can't figure out how to go about that, either! Lots of learning to do with this hobby/addiction but learning better from this forum than any books I've read yet! So, again, thanks and I will be picking everybody's brain for a long while yet!

    I am so glad that I took a moment to look at the board tonight. Your quilt is terrific. The puzzle fabric for the border adds the extra touch of class!!

    Thanks for sharing................ :D

    I always have a hard time coming up with "boys" quilt patterns. This is great and so colorful - I may just copy your ideas!

    Thanks, I'd like to give it a try too. I just buy what fabric I need at the time and buy a little extra. That's how I built my stash.

    Thanks SO much for all the compliments, you have all inspired me to keep on trying, they all seem so imperfect to me. Now, if I would just quit spending ALL my time reading this great source of info (am digging back, this is quite the forum)maybe I would get some quilting done!
