A Little Friday Puzzle.....and a Giveaway!!

It's been a busy Friday.  I just finished a top for my next submission for the "Little Quilts, Big Talent" auction for the Virginia Quilt Museum.  Here's a picture.....

Can you guess the pattern?  And yes, those are nine-patch blocks, but that's not the quilt pattern.

If you can guess, I'll send a package of foundation-piecing patterns from Cindi Edgerton.  Here's the title of the quilt, and a picture of the mini-Christmas stockings:

Yep....that's the title; I had to take a picture of it because I can't figure out how to do superscript yet in's the giveaway.  There are two foundations each of four different stockings in various sizes:

This is easy folks; here's a hint.....the quilt has nine colors:

Do you need another hint?  It's the smaller version of a quilt I want to make for Guy (if you've been reading my blog, you know what that is). 

Tell me the pattern, and the significance of the title.  Leave me a comment, and I'll enter you in the drawing for the pattern.  Become a follower, and you'll get a second entry.  Make sure your comment includes a link to your email; I'll keep this contest open until Saturday night (April 21st).   

And don't forget to check out these links:  The Colorado Lady is hosting an Ugly Fabric Quilt Challenge.  Click on the link or on the button on the right; you can enter until April 30th.

Have you made a quilt for the Virginia Quilt Museum auction yet?  We need your quilts!  Submissions are being accepted all year long.  The first silent auction is already on display at the Museum, and the first on-line auction starts May 10th.  Go to this link to download a submission form.  All money raised helps to support the Museum; you can also get the latest Museum news by following them on Facebook

Have a great day....I had fun this morning playing with these lovely colors.  This afternoon I've got to pick out my fabrics for my class next week...I'm running out of excuses.

I like it, and I believe it's your Soduko quilt, right? Anyway, it's nice!

Definitely a Sudoku quilt. And I am guessing the title is the possible number of legal combinations that can be arranged?

Mary G said...

I agree quilt is Sudoku quilt, and 6.67 X 10^21 is the number of unique sudoku puzzles that are possible. I like your color combo. Thanks for a great blog. Cheers!

ooooohh!! Oh! Oh!! I know that one!! It's the sudoku quilt!! (and I'll copy off the other ladies as to the significance of the title) But I don't need an entry :)

Sudoku Quilt and that very large number is the number of different "legal Sudoku" color combos that are possible withthe nine solids you selected.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Joyce Carter said...

The name of the quilt is Sudoka, and the number is the different puzzle combinations you can make.

Would have to agree with the other commentors: It;s your Sudoku quilt. Significance? I don't really know. Thanks for the giveaway.

It must be sudoko - no color is ever in the same place twice. Very neat.
