So... I saw a David Tennant pixel quilt online (and am only slightly obsessed with Doctor Who - the 10th Doctor in particular) and thought that I just had to have one. I've never made a quilt before, but have always wanted one. I figured it couldn't be too hard to do since it's all the same size squares. 4800 one inch squares later and my first quilt top was done. I still have to get the batting and backing, and then quilt it together, so it's not really done but I just couldn't help showng it off a little bit Smiley


I haven't measured it yet, but it should be 80x60 inches. But I have learned that I cannot sew a straight line for anything Smiley
My four year old is just off to the side to give you some reference of size.

The further away you are, the better you can tell who it is. I found a picture of him online and charted it in a cross stitch pattern maker. Lowered it down to the lowest number of colors that still allowed you to tell who it was and then went fabric shopping. There are 9 different colors. There are a couple I would change if I made another one, and it would have looked a lot better the more colors added, but this was a budget quilt.



And here is a link to the quilt that inspired me-

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Thank you all for the compliments. I'm so excited about finishing it up - but nervous too as I don't want to mess it up. And as being chosen as a featured project - I am beyond honored. Again, thank you all so much!!

I don't watch Dr Who so I thought it was Robert Patinson at first.    Grin. You did a great job.

Awesome work! It's always inspiring to see others who have made portrait quilts, especially ones in different styles. Do you know how you plan to finish it? Would you keep it as an art piece or finish it into an actual quilt? I'm currently stuck with mine because the piecework is so small.

I really have no idea how to finish it. I'm still waiting on the material, and browsing tutorials. I think I'm just going to throw it on the bed and use it. It's my first one, I don't really want to give it up. Since I usually go to bed about an hour before my husband, I do wonder how many times he's going to hear "Night night, going to snuggle with David." before I have to take it off the bed Smiley
