    Yes, I just made up the pattern. I usually use graph paper to do the design and then color in the spaces to get a pattern to go by.

    That is one awesome quilt! I have Christmas material and an instruction book for Bargello's. I just might have to try this.

    A smaill quilt like this doesn't take much fabric. You could probably do one this size with a couple of strips the width of the fabric.

    When I do small ones, I will do two sets of all the fabrics sewn in to panels. Press one set up, the other down. cut half of your sub cut from panel # 1 the other half from the other panel. When sewing the cuts together having one with the seams press up and the other down helps nest the seams together.
    Once the quilt is finished, I press all the last seams to one side.

    Sharon, I'm not sure, but I have one hanging in my entryway with basically the same layout and it looks to be about 30 x 25.
    Looks like the strips were 2 in. and the sub-cuts were one from 1 inch to 3.5

    Thanks Barb, that sounds like a good size for me to try. :D and if it actually turns out I have a place to hang it.
