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 three 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. I've designed seven of these puzzles, although at the moment, only two are 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!
