Congratulations. That is wonderful.
Hugs to you.
Looks very interesting! Good idea! Well done.
Looks great, are your dianonds cut 45 or 60 degrees?
60 degrees. The patterns and templates are from the book, " patchwork Puzzle Balls" by Jinny Beyer. It is published by Breckling Press. You can Google it and see other books by her. It was a lot of fun to do.
This is really lovely. Clever girl !
Thank you, You are so kind.
Wow that is great work on your part. It must have been very tricky getting it just right. Ruthie
I must admit, I had to concentrate and make markers throughout the project.
congatrs Bonnie, well done.
Is it done with paper inside the shapes?
No, the individual shapes are cut and then sewn to each other. If it is sewn correctly it becomes a ball, if not, really interesting looking shapes appear!
Very well done. Jan
Thank you Jan!
Bonnie - this is wonderful. I would imagine quite a tricky thing to do. Many congratulations. Also so good to see a picture of you. Hugs Sarah.
Thank you Sarah, I have to concentrate pretty hard to keep it going!

could you just let us know where to get the pattern and instructions from for it as i would love to make a batch up for the local childrens hospice so they can toss them from bed to bed without hurting anyone. thank you annie in the uk
Thank you Annie. The book is called Patchwork Puzzle balls by Jinny Beyer. It is published by Breckling Press. It may be available at local shops, or you can order it online through Jinny. The ISBN # is 0-9721218-5-4. My copy is from 2005. It is on ebay or Amazon, or many other outlets. My cost was $ 20. I'm not sure what that equals in pounds.
Once cut you can take it anywhere.
way to puzzling for me! LOL!!!
Thank you Meganne!

so cool, congratulations!
How cool is that! Congratulations on your first place finish. I bet there will be a lot of your balls in nurseys, daycares, and schools to teach shapes, and will also be great using textured fabric for the special needs children. Wonderful and innovative! Live Laugh Download Stitch
