Default Purple Puzzle Quilt

I am making this quilt for my mother. I am visiting her in November. I just cut the squares and arranged them this week. I really like the way it is turning out. I am using the tutorial from Pieces by Polly - http://www.piecesbypolly.com/2012/09...e-pattern.html. I also included a picture of some testing I did to sew on the "knobs" for the puzzle pieces. It's my first time doing any sort of appliqué and I was pleased with the results. It still has work to do but I'm excited to get this project done. My mom loves purple and jigsaw puzzles. I think I will QAYG for this project to speed up the process a bit.

Have you decided how you are going to sew the "knobs" on? I have this on my bucket list along with so many others. I'm sure your mom will love it.

Teddybear Lady - I’m going to use a blanket stitch for the knobs. I did several tests with the satin stitching and it was too bold and dense for my taste.
Thank you Tartan and QuiltnNan!

Thank you! Choosing the fabrics was almost the easy part because I like purple, too.
