    Default quilt tutorial possibility

    I'm sure there are tons and tons of tutorial suggestions, but i would just like to throw this idea into the pool of possibilities.

    A puzzle quilt.

    I recently became more involved with the local "Autism speaks" and in April, there will be a bug 5k run as well as all sorts of fundraising, games, and family events. There have been a few ladies (as well as my self) who are interested in making quilts to donate for the fundraising. Since the "symbol" for autism are puzzle pieces, a puzzle quilt would be amazing. I can't seem to find very many good tutorials or instructions for it.

    Thank you for you time.

    I was very tempted to buy up the puzzle print fabric while in Hobby Lobby for something else the other day.

    I've seen some spectacular quilts but wonder how easy it would be to make one?

    It might be a good design to use the mini charms.

    That one actually doesnt look too hard to figure out. Plus Jenny has already done the plus sign quilt, I figure it is probably just a variation of that.

    I made a puzzle quilt for my son a few years back now. was not hard, you do need to keep your rows straight. I had it drawn on paper so I knew what piece to put next.
