HI fellow crafty people  Cheesy  I am looking to make a pixel quilt for my brother.  I usually use perler bead or cross stitch patterns (or any other pattern that can be easily translated into pixel-ish form) to mock up a pattern for a pixel quilt, but am having trouble finding what I need this time.  So I thought I'd ask here and hope for some magic Smiley

I need a pixel/cross stitch/whatever pattern/picture of a Lego Army guy.  This would become the focus of my quilt.  Any ideas or help would be appreciated greatly!

I'm still looking for the program I am trying to think of, but there is a free Craftsy class on how to make your own:

Did you check around spritestitch for free patterns?  They're bead/cross stitch, but could be done as quilt blocks.  Smiley

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

Thanks ladies Smiley  Listessa, I haven't tried that site thanks.  I have a program that I can use, it's actually a cross stitch program but it totally works for pixely projects, just haven't found a picture that works yet because I can't seem to find a pixel pic and regular ones are all coming out weird when I put them in.

I can't wait to see what you come up with!  If Spritestitch's forum is a bust for an image, I think they have a bunch of links to other pixel art sites that might be able to give you exactly what you need. 

I found some really obscure stuff- like dinos from Primal Rage- through their links.
