What are you most proud of? Despite the pixelation or maybe because of it this image becomes universal and no longer specific. Litteraly my daughter said: it's daddy but i don't know who it is on his lap. In the paint by numbers fase, which I don't know how to put here, I chose to change the sweater back to it's original color(dark blue), a design choice, it softened things up. In the end I used 20 different colors, do-able I hope.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Listen very carefully to this class, it's a good one.

You did a great job. Just purchased a class on pixelated quilts... You've inspired me.

I have just tried to do the conditional formatting and the program only allows 10 rules, how did you manage to get 20 colours into the spreadsheet Thanks Colleen

Thank you for the kind comments. I hope to start cutting the fabrics soon and I will be back with the final results.

So sweet! That's a very moving picture, and even when pixelated, the emotion comes across so clearly. I love the idea of turning such an expressive picture into a quilt.

Can't wait to see the finished quilt. It's a beautiful picture.
