Among the other fun things happening at the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, this quilt will be on display; it will later be auctioned off on E-Bay for charity.

The puzzle on the quilt itself is apparently one constructed by Will Shortz and published under the editorship of Margaret Farrar in the 1970's. I haven't solved the puzzle myself, but from the looks of the grid it would seem that before WS became the Grand Poobah of All Things Crossword at the NYT, he did have some constructing chops of his own.
