The Last Supper has been a favorite piece of art for me for as long as I can remember. I have often looked for patterns for cross stitching this painting. I did find one or two, but they were hopelessly complicated for me. So, I decided to make my own inspired by the painting. This pattern when cross stitched on 20 pt aida fabric will be approximately 36" x 11". It took me over a year to complete this pattern. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

- THIS IS A PATTERN ONLY! NOT A FINISHED PRODUCT!
I started on the creation of this pattern over a year ago. I felt very passionate about the project as the subject matter is near and dear to my heart. I used the PCStitch program, which I love, to create the pattern. I used DMC floss colors to create the look of the original painting while using my own color style. My style is best marked by the black outline and color filling the inside, kind of like a coloring book. I also try to use as few colors as possible to keep it simple. This particular pattern uses the most colors I have used to date in a single pattern. I tried to give each disciple a different shade or color combination to make him his own person. Of course, Jesus taking center stage being the only one to wear purple, the color of royalty. I did try to keep the colors as close to the colors used in the painting, but of course made adjustments where necessary. Twenty three DMC colors were used. It took a long time to get it just right, until I finally found a rhythm that worked. I chose to remove most of the items from the table that were in the painting. I left the bread and cup to symbolize today's celebration of Communion, which we do to remember this moment in the Bible. As I said before, this was a deeply personal project. I feel truly blessed at having the opportunity to create something so meaningful to so many. I hope you enjoy it as much as I. God Bless!
