WARNING LOTS OF PICS AND PIXELS!

Here's is my submitted project:


When I first saw this project I knew I had to participate in it.  I love all of the mama games.  

My darling husband saw the challenge and also pushed me to do it.  He helped with creating the artwork that I quilted with.  He help create the pictures and the pallete to use with:





Total Number of Colors = 12
Total Number of Pixels = 2160


Each square I cut was about 1.5 inches, so each pixel would turn out as 1 inch.  Here are some in progress shots:

All the fabrics together:


All the squares cut:


The quilt top completed:


I finished the project with 10 minutes to go.  I am such a procrastinator.  I hope that you all love it!!!

Love it! The palette you and hubby chose are perfect, and the squares are so neat and, well, pixel-looking!

If I made a full sized quilt, it would have taken  me over a month and I would have missed the deadline.  Gratz to you for finishing it with 10 minutes to spare!

She is beautiful!  I can't get over how perfect and even the squares are- the one time I tried to make a quilt I was all over the place, hehe.  And I bow to your excellent timing. Wink

Your quilt is very cute, and it looks life like- well as life like as you can get with pixels. You should be proud of your hard work, it looks great.

That's one cool quilt! You did a beautiful job, it's amazing how all the squares line up so perfectly. And how cute that your husband helped with the project.
