    Searching for puzzle quilt pattern

    I saw a cool puzzle quilt in one of my fb groups that I really liked. I msgd the poster and she said she used ten inch squares and figured out the notches in her own. I will try to post photo of her quilt here. Those sure look smaller than ten inch blocks to me. If I have to make my own pattern up, do you just cut out circles and applique them to the blocks? I have seen patterns using H shapes but I like the rounded nubs bc I t FB_IMG_1603909752036.jpg hink they look more realistic.

    I found a pattern on Etsy ( that you don't need to buy, lol) and the nubs are appliqued on. I think it could be done nicer

      How cool is that! I need to show this to my daughter. Her in-laws do a lot of puzzles. Would be a wonderful gift for them and she does quilt.

          I like how the pieces go over the border. Nice find!

          This was a good explanation, I wouldn't have thought to use that press & sew, or whatever it was called.

        If you have an embroidery machine, Sweet Pea Designs has a great pattern that can be turned into a tote bag, pillow or quilt. A strip of puzzle pieces would look great running through the middle of a Sofa pillow.

          Thanks but no emb machine. Maybe I should just cut out the blocks and send them to you. Just kidding

        You are right, unless she is a giant, those are 5: squares compared to her hand. 10" would make the applique easier. Although, if you take the 10: square and cut off 2" on two sides then you have an 8" block and the extra fabric to make the "arms".

        H - is it HELPFUL?
        I - is it INSPIRING?
        N - is it NECESSARY?
        K - is it KIND?

          That's what I was thinking too, to cut a ten inch down so you would have enough matching scraps for the puzzle tabs, bc you don't always have an identical ten inch piece to cut those extras out of.

              if you google jig-saw puzzle outline , there are shapes. I think I would mess up if I didn't have something to follow.

                I never thought of that! I could print one then mess around enlarging/reducing the size since we have a full size copy machine. Thanks.
