Free Jigsaw Download * Mary Queen of Scots by Antonia Fraser

I cannot believe it is 40 years since the first publication of Antonia Fraser's ground breaking biography of Mary Queen of Scots -what have I been doing all this time! While I was in the shop at Waddesdon Manor after visiting their fabulous Sacred Stitches exhibition, I was delighted to see this new cover which is a look-like cross-stitched sampler. So, I thought it would be just the thing for a jigsaw. I hope you enjoy it! To download the jigsaw - 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. This particular piece is actually from Papillon Creations is the Mary, Queen of Scots sampler. It was commissioned by the publishers Orion Publishing for the cover of a new edition of the biography of Mary Queen of Scots by Antonia Fraser. The book was published in Great Britain in early 2009, and the finished sampler was presented to the author as a gift by the publishers. This variation is not available for stitching, unfortunately.

    Should anyone wish to purchase the sampler, it is available directly from Papillon Creations at It is 12.95 euros/15.95 USD.
