My daughter would flip over this quilt!  She has several pet names, but what I call her the most is ducky. Smiley 

Great work.

Thank you!  Smiley  I can't wait until Christmas day so I can give it to them and see their reactions.

Hi everyone!  I'm finally back in the office and have the pattern for this quilt.  Iheartcapnhook, I sent you a pm about this.....Let me know if anyone else wants it and I will send it to you.

I am so glad ya'll like it.  It definitely turned out better than I expected.

As far as the pattern goes, I'd be glad to send it to whoever wants it....I can't seem to find it on my computer here at home though...I did it at work one day and it's saved there.....I'll be going in sometime next week and can get it then.

As far as using excel, I just pretended each block on there was a 4 1/2" unfinished fabric block.  I highlighted the amount of blocks I would need to make the quilt as big as I wanted and outlined them.  Then I used different colors to fill in each puzzle piece so I could get an idea of what it would look like....if that makes sense....I've used that program before for other quilts...oh and my ex used visio a few times to design things for me....I don't understand that program though.

oh, and as a time saver, I sewed the black blocks on when I did each row, so I didn't have to do a border.....it's already there.  Smiley

Ok...here's the thing with this one.....I saw one of these quilts up at the bloomsburg fair back in October and wanted to make one, but I couldn't find any free patterns online......so, I made my own pattern up.  I used Excel for that.

It was extremely easy and fast to make.  When I quilted it, I just outlined each puzzle piece and did loops on the solid black border.   It's lap sized.....I made it for my gf's mom who does puzzles with her grandaughters as a Christmas present.

Thanks for looking.
