School Girl's Puzzle is another great quilt block from my favorite quilt book, "Around the Block with Judy Hopkins". When I look at this block, I see fish! Maybe that's because I just finished a nautical quilt for someone.
This is just a three fabric quilt. I used a busy floral and leaf print fabric that gives the quilt a modern feel. The second fabric is a soft peach and the third is a white on white print. The quilt block is not difficult, you have half square triangles, squares and triangles.
I used the School Girl's Puzzle quilt block to make a soft and sweat baby quilt. I think the quilt could have a totally different look if you used more solid fabrics. You could also use four fabrics to add contrast. I hope you give this block a try.
I have been quilting for close to 30 years and after loosing my job three years ago, I am now able to do what I love, QUILT! I specialize in baby quilts and have designed the "Lovie Lap Quilt" with pockets.
