Puzzle Quilt

 This is a puzzle quilt that was for the Autism Gala at Jared's school.

It is the third one we have donated.  The fabric for the top was leftover from other projects or from stash, with the exception of two fat quarters.  This was pretty close to a first for us, since we tend to rush to the store for everything.  Both Richard and I pieced the top.  Richard did quilt it as usual.

He did straight line quilting, but echo quilted along each of the puzzle pieces. 

We took some pictures over the weekend, experimenting with the black backdrop.  We are trying to decide what color does best for pictures. Does the black look better, or the white we took a few weeks ago?  I know there are wrinkles, we should have ironed it. 

 Of course Julia thought we should get some of her too.

Maybe non moving objects are easier to photograph.

We can never seem to get all 4 kids to smile or look in the same direction.

I prefer the white background for the quilt picture.

I prefer the white as well. I think it shows off the colors better.

I only have 2 kids, and it was hard enough to get them to look the same direction at the same time. I liked the black background. It made the white in the quilt 'pop'.

I prefer the white backround too. It is less contrasting and therefore more peaceful.
Congratulations on another finish!(Oh boy, you guys are busy!)
