Puzzle Box Quilt Along

I've been working on these blocks for a little while. I collected the fabrics over the summer since I didn't own too many solids. This quilt along actually took place in July and into August. I just collected the directions and knew I would make it when I had more time.

The blog that hosted this quilt along is called Farbstoff. I'm not really sure what that means but the blogger's name is Brigitte Heitland and she lives in Germany. I thought the instructions were very clear and easy to follow.
This quilt is considered to be a modern quilt. I love the lines and the solid fabrics. I feel it looks crisp and clean. I still have to buy a border for it. I am going to wait until I put it together so I can get a better feel for it. I was actually leaning towards gray or black. I will see what I think once the blocks are all sewed together. 

This is just one placement version. I may end up changing my mind a few times. The picture looks a bit fuzzy but you get the idea! Time for dinner! Have to figure out what to make!
