Free Jigsaw Download - Exquisite Kantha Shawl

I have just returned from a fabulous Kantha Quilting course at West Dean College. Kantha is the art of 'up-cycling' quilts from used saris and has been practiced in the area now called Bangladesh from about 1850. Over the weekend, working until very late in the night, I came to develop a great respect for the Kantha stitchers, as well as our amazingly inspired and inspiring tutor Lynne Setterington and wonderful fellow course members. If you have the opportunity to try this technique for yourself, be first on the list! Many Kanthas have a central mandala-type motif, and here is one from an exquisite shawl for you to explore yourself. My thanks to Amanda for allowing me to take this image. I hope you enjoy this free jigsaw. However, sadly, this is not going to work for Mac users. Instructions: Click here next Click Open, then click the .EXE file name and click Run, when you see the jigsaw puzzle, click Play Too many pieces? Try clicking on Trays on the top tool bar to create any number of resizeable trays to sort your pieces ........ you can also click the Cheat button and watch the puzzle solve itself! The software is by David Gray designer of Jigsaws Galore - the powerful jigsaw player and creator for Windows.

  1. Well, now you've done it! It's really hot here today, just like the rest of the country, and we're holed up in the office with our air conditioner, so I will while away quite a long time on this one I'm sure.

    I've downloaded this program for the free trial (which is almost up) and have spent far too long playing with this by turning all my pictures into puzzles!
