Bar Code tester quilts
Bar Code is a super versatile quilt pattern with almost unlimited options for colours and fabrics.
Bar Code is a block based pattern with a nod to the traditional Rail Fence that will help you flex your strip-piecing muscles. Or learn a new skill if you've never strip-pieced before. It comes with 4 sizes and 3 colour options and is suited for advanced, or adventurous, beginners.
I got to work with some fabulous testers again to make this pattern come to life. Here are their interpretations of the Bar Code quilt pattern.

Bar Code sizes
Bar Code comes with instructions for 4 quilt sizes:
- Pillow or Wallhanging
- Square Throw
- Rectangular Throw
Since this is a block based quilt, it's also very easy to just add more blocks to make the quilt (almost) any size you like.

Bar Code includes instructions for three colour versions, but the options are almost endless:
- A six-colour option, shown below (Viky's quilt is a variation of that option)
- A two-tone option with a single colour for all the bars (see Heather's slightly "rogue" version of this above, and Stacey's at the end of the post)
- And a scrappy version perfect for raiding your scrap bins or your stash (Mercedes' quilt below)

I hope these quilts have inspired you for your own versions. Bar Code is available in the pattern shop.
