Gorgeous images → fabulous pixel quilt designs

YouPatch is a pixelating service that turns a picture into a quilt pattern in a couple of simple steps.

Not just a pixelated picture but an actual pattern, with yardage requirements and how to assemble.

It's absolutely brilliant and such a fantastic idea.

Why YouPatch?

Designing pixel quilts used to be tedious and time-consuming.

YouPatch makes it fast (minutes instead of hours), fun, and accessible.

It is a great program. I wanted to do this type of quilt but am not sure that it would have happened without your program.

It gives you a pattern and even gives you fabric requirements in Kona cottons.

So awesome!! Great tutorials/videos about how to use the software too.

Youpatch made it so much easier.

Brilliant, value-packed patterns

Save hours of effort!

YouPatch patterns are clear, systematic and so easy to follow.

I'm really impressed! The way the pattern breaks up the colours for each block and then shows you each individual block with the colours is great.

The unexpected bonus of the fabric calculations and cutting guide at the end is really fantastic!

I will absolutely use your site because my 20 hours or so of prep time is worth far more than $9.50!
