I made this quilt for my boyfriend because he needed a better blanket for his sofa. I wanted it to be uber cool, so I went on a search for edgy, modern quilts a la Boo Davis. When I came across some Space Invader designs, I knew I found the perfect pattern.
I started the quilt with a sketch based on some pixelated graphics of the aliens and went from there. I used a combination of 2x2 squares and strips with 1/4" seam allowance for the construction. Because the pattern is so graphic and the pieces were small, I wanted all my corners to lineup perfectly. I used a technique that I learned about in Tula Pink's book Quilts From The House of Tula Pink, where you nest your seams together. It worked like magic to keep the corners neat!
Once the quilt was done, I sent it off to Jason Spicknall of Secret Stash Quilting to do the quilting and it turned out amazing! Since finishing my quilt, I've decided that I need to make one for myself based on the Ms. Pac-Man game. Think how cute that'll be with colorful ghosts, fruits and of course Ms. Pac-Man with her adorable bow and girly red lips...
That came out spectacularly! And the quilting pattern works so well, nicely done.
Such good work! The colors are especially fantastic.
This is amazing! I'm excited to see the Ms. Pac-Man version :)
It turned out so so well! AWESOME WORK LADY!
