Shock Wave by Ricky Tims  

This fun and colorful quilt was originally a miniature quilt made from 3” blocks when I was a baby quilter in the early 90s. Over the years various magazines wanted to pattern the quilt but they all felt it would require too many pages. A few years ago I took that job upon myself and created the pattern which is simple, concise, and easy-to-follow. 
For kicks and grins, look at the position of the colors in the large triangles and watch those colors flow diagonally across the quilt. In the upper right the lime green is the large triangles and that flow of color goes from upper right to bottom left. But if you look at the lime green in the bottom left, in the small triangles, and follow the flow of small triangle's color to the upper right, you’ll see that flow of color is is the same - it's just flowing the opposite way. In essence…two waves crashing into each other.
The organization of colors is super simple and described in the pattern. Get the digital download now for instant gratification and save on shipping.


 Here is the original little miniature of Shock Wave from 1992 using 3” blocks.


Choose your own difficulty. Click the 9-patch grid to change number of pieces. Click the circle arrow to make the puzzle pieces rotating instead of stable orientation. Also, there are tips under the "?" on the upper right of the puzzle. If you'd like a full screen version, click the button below. Have fun!
