Hope everyone is well. This week the theme is Well-dressed Man. I have been addicted to Mad Men on Netflix. So, I chose Don Draper (Jon Hamm). Last year at the WI Quilt Expo, Kristy Daum had her quilt, Sherlock there. It was a pixel quilt. She took a photo and uploaded it to pic2pat and it created a pattern for cross stitch but she turned it into a quilt. I have wanted to try this but never had a subject until now.
I took this picture and did the pic2pat
Then I had to find fabric. I actually had to buy fabric for this one. Not once but twice. The first time I made this I measured wrong . Each square was to measure 1.5 by 1.5. So my thinking was 1.5+1.5 equals three, it doesn't it equals 2.5 when you take away the seam allowance. Nothing was matching up so I decided to start over . So off to the quilt store again to buy more fabric.
Did I do it right the second time? Of course not. The brown I had chosen was way too dark and he look like a scary skeleton.
He still does look a little scary up close but if you squint you can see his figure better.
He measures about 27x27.
Linking up to project quilting. Thanks for stopping by.
