Anyone for Sudoku? Great game and a great way to pass an hour and always a challenge.

Not so the quilt. Easy and fun and so pretty.

If you haven't done this pattern before, you simply pick out nine different fabrics, mine were all Asian, and label them 1 to 9. Made a paste up with 9 blocks, numbered 1 to 9 on it and paste swatches of the chosen colors in the matching blocks. This makes life much easier when you get to piecing the blocks.

The Plan: The object in Sudoku is to fill a grid with the numbers 1 to 9 so that each row, column, and box contains each number only once. In this delightful quilt, fabrics take the place of the numbers, with each fabric appearing only once per column, row, and block. This paragraph is a direct quote from the pattern.

You can plan the size you want your finished project to be, which is nice. I used 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch squares and 3/4" sashing and the border was 1 1/2" x wof.

Have fun if you decide to try one.
