So this is my first time posting one of my quilting projects here, mostly because I give most of my projects away without taking pictures of them!  But this quilt ended up taking so much time and becoming somewhat epic in my house that I knew it needed to be shared, along with the story of how it came to be at all.

So for his birthday over the summer, I made my husband these wallhangings.  

   

He liked them, and almost immediately started talking about wanting a Nyan can wallhanging as well.  So I got my supplies and made found a good pixel picture, then used a program called KG - Chart LE for Cross Stitch to make up a pattern.  Got started thinking I would just make a Nyan cat, but somehow I didn't figure the actual size of this project as I started lol  So by the time I had Nyan cat mostly put together, I realized it would be a freaking massive wallhanging!  Like almost 70 inches long, which is ridiculous of course.  So I decided to make up a pattern for his nemesis Waffle cat and make it into a big quilt instead!



 

All told, it's made up of 3025 1 1/2 inch squares and by the end I was about ready to stab someone if I had to sew any more little squares together lol.  But the husband is very proud of his new blanket, our cat loves it, and I am epically proud of my work.



Hope you enjoy, and comments would be welcomed Smiley

I'm not into gaming, so I don't get the references at all, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate your quilt.  Epic is right!! You should be proud, it is awesome.
