Recently I was sharing my hobbies with a new acquaintance and he commented on how similar quilting is to jigsaw puzzles–both favorites of mine. I had to agree since I had recently finished this fractured quilt and found it quite a brain teaser. I used extra cuts for the backing.
The one I’m working on now was even harder to get started correctly. I finally cut a little window the size of one block and moved it around the diagram to see what I was supposed to be doing (just noticed window is not quite centered on a block in photo but you get the idea). Finally got it going and am now ready to sew.
