yes, the center is appliqued on.  you are supposed to use double fold bais tape but i just used some shoe lace type stuff i had already.

i got why you chose that pattern, so i don't think it's too obscure.  there is actually an autism puzzle fabric available online too.

i have two kids on the spectrum as well(and two other young children) and i am greatful that living in Canada means I don't pay out of pocket for treatment, but it also means less services and long wait lists, and sometimes being told flat out that there is not enough funding available to help anyone else.  I envy your ability to be so cheerful and positive about it.  i struggle everyday and feel like i am barely able to keep my head above the water.  I hope you raise alot of money with it for your little guy!

it's hard to say, because i cut and sewed three pairs assembly line style.  i normally quilt though and this was obviously much faster than that.  the pattern is actually not that complex, it looks much more difficult than it is.  if you don't quilt you will need to learn how to use binding, which again is not as hard as it sounds.  i would encourage anyone with sewing experience to try these.  i put leather on the bottom and thick padding so they actually can be worn outside if it is a dry cold.

Looks really nice for a first quilt!  the colours are great and the prints are really perfect for a baby.  and yes, flannel and fleece can both be difficult!

thank you!  i am super crafty and like sewing so quilting just seems  to come to me.

yeah, Maremare is right. that is how they are made.  i used 3 1/2 and 5" squares and just did a simple pleat in the center of the larger on to make them the same size, then pin.  i pinned the corners too. the pinning was the long part.  i don't usually pin stuff but it was necessary on this one.  i did the pinning while i watched tv so it wasn't too bad.  i did them in batches, pined 40, sewed them, stuffed them.  this one is made from 120 puffs, 10 rows of 12.  sewing all the squared together was a bit hard, because it is bulky and awkward.  it took alot of wrestling with my sewing machine to get them through.  then i just added a couple borders and a backing.
