Micah's "GECKO" Quilt

This adaptation of "Jig Saw" was completed entirely from my stash. The geckos were inspired by one of the fabrics used. I found it easier to plan the placement of the puzzle pieces by scanning strips of my fabric choices first, printing in color and cutting out the same number of small puzzle pieces as I had fabric. The paper layout showed me which fabrics had to be included in each block and auditioned the placement and contrast of colors. The gecko applique pattern was also an enlargement of the scanned gecko print.
