Puzzle Quilt



Today we would like to share another Autism Puzzle Quilt.  This is now the 3rd quilt we have made.  The first can be found here.  The 2nd Here.  The first and 2nd quilts were donated as part of Last year's and this year's Autism Gala (fund raiser for my son Jared's school Spectrum Academy a charter school for those on the autistic spectrum here in Utah)


This is also the 2 quilt we made out of our Pieces Of Hope fabric which I gave Tanya for Christmas last year.  We had a fat quarter bundle of the full line and made 2 quilts and have a baby quilt top half done.


This quilt I quilted different then what I have quilted in the past.  Most quilts I have echo quilted or just straight line quilted.  This is still straight line but it is a very tight or more dense quilting, not a lot of space between the quilt lines.  I think it turned out fantastic but I was tired by the time I was done quilting it.


Like the last quilt we bought a back specific for it but it was not quite wide enough (and we knew that when we ordered it) so we got some yellow solid to cover the 2 sides.  It was bound with the striped fabric that was part of this fabric line.

The first thing I noticed was the quilting, and I like the lines being so close together.
