Puzzle - part 4 -

The inspiration for the quilt came from the daily Sudoku puzzles I like to solve. To make the design more exciting I shifted the blocks of the original Sudoku puzzle a little:



The beads I intended to use, did not combine with the yarn as well as I thought so I replaced them with others.
It was the first time that I used fabrics like velvet and lace and tried beads for embellishing a quilt:



Finally this is the quilt I made for the first 2010 challenge quilt of  3Creative Studios. It is machine patched and quilted, measures 21.5"x 21.5"(55x55cm) and the name is "Sudoku Blues":



Thank you for your visit!

  1. Your Sudoku quilt is great. Every inch of the quilt has something interesting to look at. I particularly like your bobbin work and the way you used the yard with the little snowflakes. Great fabric choices.
    My husband is also a Sudoku fan.Our children gave him a "Sudoku for Blackbelts," book one Christmas and he downloads extra puzzles from the internet. Your quilt looks as challenging as the puzzles.
