For many years, I was intrigued by the idea of using my quilts and hangings as the images on jigsaw puzzles. I thought it would be fun playing with all that color! For the last two years I have been working with Peaceful Wooden Puzzles in Wisconsin to create puzzles that use not only my images, but my own cut patterns as well -- that is, I've designed the shape of the pieces, including the whimsies. Seven of these puzzles are now available.

The puzzles are made of maple plywood and cut with a laser. The color is vibrant. Each is packed in its own padded bag, using hand-dyed fabric that ties in with the puzzle's image or its cut. These puzzles are sure to become family heirlooms!
