* Featured on http://www.geekcrafts.com!!! View post here: http://geekcrafts.com/half-life-quilt/. Thanks again so much for posting it!


So this took a looooong time! This is the very first quilt I've made, never attempted anything like it before. Cutting the squares was definetly the most time consuming part. I made this for my fiance, hes a huge HL fan. Figured it'd go good with the headcrab I made him lolol.http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=330602.0


Its 57"x57"
this is the front of it


and i used camo fleece on the back so it was extra cuddly!



Will update this tomorrow night when i put the two pieces together. I'm also adding an orange border arounnd the whole thing  Shocked


****Edit
Ok, Heres a few pictures of it done and such!
Heres what the orange fabric looks like:


Corners:


and 2 pics of it! Sorry they're in the kitchen but i needed good lighting lolol

Awesome!

Could you take a shot of the pattern on the orange? Also does it fade from orange to red? Or is it all the same color?

Love it.

Love it. My DH is a halflifer too, when I was preggo with my DD (5 now) I used to fall asleep to the sounds of the guns, lol. The quilt came out awesome and looks like it was time consuming indeed.

thanks everyone!! Smiley

Yojetak, Its just orange. My camera is older than anything and my monitor is old too so the colors are all dark so I didnt know how much to adjust the colors and just left it as is. When I finish up I'll take more pics and use my laptop instead of the PC so I can see if the colors showed up the right way.  As far as pattern, I googled "half life logo pixels" (lol) and it found me a cross stitching pattern http://img505.imageshack.us/img505/1677/halflifelambdapo9.png  from user nintandrew on SpriteStitch. I just used that with fabric squares instead of cross stitching.
