This is the first time I've posted any of my projects on craftster... so be nice! I've seen everyone make their video game quilts and wanted to make one too! It's taken me about four months, but then again I've been procrastinating a great deal. This is the second quilt I've attempted, and being new at this, I'm not so good at matching up corners and such. SO... I didn't want to make a little bitty one-inch square for every pixel & ended drafting up  my own design. The back is made out of fuzzy yellow fabric. It's so warm! yum. Smiley Not everything matched up correctly and my lines got crooked when I sewed on top of it, but I'm happy with how it turned out!

Thank you for looking!

Made with love in every stitch. <3

Well the wonky bits must correspond exactly to wonky bits in my eyes coz I can't see any!  Grin Well done, that is a really fun project.

I think that looks great! Totally great!!!

PS: Don't beat yourself up over what 'mistakes' you have made; sometimes we are our worst critics!  ::)It's kind of like when you are looking for mistakes, you are more likely to keep finding it! Obviously your mistakes are obvious to you, but that doesn't mean that everyone else will notice them straightaway! LOL
heh heh sorry for too much advice!

First of all, if it's perfect its not handmade  Grin  Good job!  I can't help but stare at some of these, your "design" is great!  I like the dots all the way around, my only problem is if my husband and son see these pics, then I get the "you can do that, right?"

Quilting is addicting, enjoy it!

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

AWESOME!!! Brings back lots of memories! You did a great job! Did you know that the Amish purposely put a mistake in their quilts? The ladies in my quilting group just call our mistakes our Amish part of the quilt! Great job!
